by Damianista | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | November 27, 2018
Today is Giving Tuesday! It is a a global day of giving we celebrate on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and kick off the charitable season! So it’s time to be thankful for all the good stuff in our lives and focus on our holiday giving.

Sohana Collins is a 15 year old teenager who was born with Recessive Dystropic Epidermolysis Bullosa (RDEB) which means she lacks the protein that holds her skin together. Kids with RDEB have extremely fragile skin that they are sometimes called “butterfly children.” Lots of activities we take for granted as easy routines in our daily lives are a struggle for them. Can you imagine a day where your dressing up takes up to two hours and eating and drinking cause blisters in your mouth and throat? These kids have to deal with this kind of pain every single day. Besides, they are under extra risk to develop skin cancer later in life and their life expectancy is not very long. Sohana’s parents Sharmila and James Collins founded Cure EB to raise awareness as well as funds for research to ultimately have a cure for this terrible skin condition.
Here is what Sohana says about EB.

‘Billions’ Makes the Best TV Box Set List for Christmas
by James Jackson – The Times – December 8, 2017
Billions gets four out of five stars and is hand picked for one of the best television box sets of the year on the “Gift Guide: The Best TV Box Sets for Christmas.” Only five made the list. Billions joins the likes of Blue Planet II, Dissent & Disruption: The Complete Alan Clarke at the BBC, The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, and Victoria Series 1 and 2.
The Times writes, “For the alpha male in your life, this US drama (shown in Britain on Sky Atlantic) is a high-wire gift: it’s a high-finance romp that he will find wildly addictive; just hope that it doesn’t encourage his worse instincts. Depicting the strategic, but hate-fueled game of chess between a crooked billionaire hedge-fund boss played by Damian Lewis and the District Attorney on his case played by Paul Giamatti, it looks sleekly wonderful, leads you in unexpected directions and has much pumped-up macho dialogue. It’s great, power-mad fun.”
£8.99 season one and £19.99 season two
