    Care Package - you can’t survive in the field without some goodies from the homefront. Pledge at this amount and Mike will bake (yes, he really bakes!) a dozen cookies - oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip or peanut butter - and send them Priority Mail* to your doorstep. These same cookies have helped us survive for days in the woods during shoots and have been sent to the front lines in Afghanistan. Share with your friends or hoard them all to yourself.
