OAB and the rest,
I was shooting at NOV 10, for obvious reasons, as being the absolute latest that I would make a decision and send the all arena announcement. I had hoped to have decided long ago but I DO NOT want your charity and kindness to go the wrong way and am trying to maximize it's effect and significance!
I hope this does not become a bone of contention but I have agonized and agonized, and waited for responses (some of which were not satisfactory 70-some% goes into the charity ) and believe I have now stumbled upon the right charity to go to once I hear back from them:
They have a veterans program that helps homeless veterans, men and women, for up to a year at a time as well as with job training and placement.
I must have gone through about 50-60 different ones, plotting them on Mapquest in relation to Prime Market and this is one of the closest (about 6.6 miles). I was hoping to stumble onto one who may have actually helped Rich and I'm thinking maybe this is one of, or THE one.
The amount raised was $225 and though it may not seem a large amount it goes A LONG way for a charity who has the right partners in the community (with chain and local stores). The delay has been unfortunate but I did not even come across this institution until 2 weeks ago, and with Katrina many charities will suffer for donations so the timing may be of benefit.
For your donations I am eternally grateful to you all and I know Rich is smiling down.
