Update #2

Climbing the Mountain

Comment

We're off to a great start comrades with a nice round of pledges, including some very generous donations! In fact, there was one GREAT BLUE HERON pledge. Thank you!

As I survey our March 1st goal of $25,000, it resembles the high peak of Mt. Everest, towering at 29,000 feet. So it's a formidable climb to reach our goal, but completely attainable. Donations will increase as our PR efforts start to kick in with articles, radio interviews, etc. With that will come more momentum and buzz, lifting us closer to our goal. We're on our way.

Once again, big thanks to the early donors. You've primed the pump!
