Every Christmas Alek Komarnitsky decks his house with over 20,000 lights and covers his lawn with enormous, controllable inflatables.  Controllable by you, that is.  Which you can watch live on one of his three webcams.

Check it out: Alek’s controllable Christmas lights for Celiac disease

Alek’s children have an auto-immune disease called Cœliac disease (spelt “Celiac disease” in North America), and Alek uses his website to raise money for research into the disease. So far he’s raised over US $50,000.

You can make a donation online at the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research.

If you have the time take an explore round the rest of Alek’s website:  It really is one of my favourite websites because, even though it doesn’t have the most sophisticated design, it simply contains so much life and love.
