Please support my holiday fundraising drive to donate $3,000 to the Children’s Village of Dobbs Ferry (hopefully by Christmas). This is ambitious, but I'm proud to say I have in excess 1,500 followers/subscribers. If just 300 of you donated $10 before Christmas this goal will be met in the blink of an eye. I will donate $1 for every $10 donated which means I’ll be donating 10% of the total raised.

Today is payday for many of you (with paydays) so donating $10 going to a great cause should be painless. Please visit my fundraising widget entitled, "Make A Donation To the Children's Village," in the right-hand column of this blog visiting the section in the right hand column of this blog and to learn more about the Children’s Village please visit www.childrensvillage.org.

Thank you, so much. Happy Friday.
