American Heart Association fundraiser

Quick solicitation --

Alex is raising money through Jump Rope for Heart at Douglas, donations go to the American Heart Association. The minimum online donation is $25, but you can also donate smaller amounts by mailing him a check made out to the American Heart Association. If you'd like to donate, his profile is here. Thanks.

If you'd like to make a different kind of donation, next month Douglas has their annual carnival fundraiser. One of their very popular events is the "Bottle Shop", where they accept donations of things that come in bottles, with commonsense exceptions like no alcohol and nothing homemade. Sodas, hot sauce, nail polish, bubble bath, stuff like that. Then they number all the bottles and sell tickets for $1 that match up with those numbers, and you get to take your random bottle home. I donate several bottles every year, but they always have more demand to buy the tickets than they have bottles. So if -- and I am thinking of my brother's beloved trips to Big Lots here -- you'll see us in the next couple of weeks and would like to donate a random bottle, we'll pass it along.

Well, you can see this yourselves, but obviously our new nephew is just perfect. Welcome to the world, Freddie.
