getting to work...

Alec has had an AMAZING few weeks as he's worked on FTWOTC.
His interview went terrific with Channel 2 news for the 'Pay it Forward' segment. Sterling Nielson and Mountain America gave him such a wonderful surprise that allowed him to go and shop for the children he loves to help. He is usually the one asking, but this year he got to go find some great deals and buy what he felt was needed most. I had fun watching him get excited and make sure we were speding the money very wisely!:)

We are amazed at the people who have responded by e-mail and phone calls to the news story they saw. So many of you have donated more than ever and made this a record breaking year for this small charity.

Thank you for feeling how important this is to Alec.
