 Odd as it may seem, please do NOT hit that donate button up there.  Please click here to donate.  Thanks to my contributors, I have already reached (and surpassed) my goal, but Karen has a higher one and I don't want to detract from that.  So if you'd like to help Project Open Hand via Team Bandwagon, please donate via her page.  Thank you!



Karen and I and our friend Barrie are running the Giants Race Half Marathon and raising money for Project Open Hand. This charity delivers meals to those unable to feed themselves due to serious illness or disability. Karen raised a boatload for this charity last year and this year we decided to see how much we could raise as a team. Last year we were able to see up close what a great charity this is, providing a valuable service to the community.


Please consider donating by clicking on the link above (or see below if you work with me at AMAT).  You can view our Team page here to see how we're doing getting to our team goal of $2500.

I and the clients of Project Open Hand thank you!
