Catherine,
Hey,I know how you feel about the cold and ice........ugh. Spring cant come soon enough around here. I am in Wisconsin and we have had everything that has come your way. Hey, I LOVE your idea of 52 causes. I just wanted to suggest one for you. It is called Samaritans Feet and a Ron Hunter, mens basketball coach from IUPUI(Indiana/Purdue combo campus in Indy) has brought alot of attention to it. It provides shoes for kids in third world countries, but this year Coach wants to provide shoes to kids in the poorest neighborhoods in New Orleans. I know you can google the organization.It is a neat organization, and one I thought you might want to put on your list of causes:) I enjoy your blog....and I am really impressed by your passion to help others. Thanks for sharing:) Dena
