Shameless Plea for Help!

As many of you know, right after college I lived and taught in Kingston, Jamaica, as part of the Notre Dame Volunteer Programme. It was one of the toughest and most enjoyable experiences of my life. One of the things we did was run Jumpball, a basketball clinic, every summer, which has always been free to all participants. The clinic has grown tremendously over the past 11 years, and while we have many generous sponsors every year, we are really in need of individual donations to help bridge the gap between our expenses and our revenue. If any of you can and want to help, or just want more info about the program, please visit the Jumpball website. This is a cause that is very important to me personally, and I would truly appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks so much, and that's the end of my begging for now!

This is not shameless at all. This is a wonderful cause and I love Michelle for being so passionate about it.

Auntie Michelle,
Mom and Dad said you are coming home to ct the first week in August to see me but I MISS YOU SO MUCH I DONT THINK I CAN WAIT!
I have been walking and have a new tooth you haven't see yet. I also can do some new tricks. Do you think you can come over tomorrow night instead?
I love you VERY MUCH!
Hugs and Sticky kisses to you and Uncle Dave.
Love,
Sammy

I was going to leave you a note to say thanks for the comment on my defining me post. At least I know one person reads my blog every now and then! I'll be posting again tonight if you are at all curious about the outcome of the fertility junk. I need to get better about updating my blog period. After I leave this I am going to check out the Jamaica site. Awesome stuff. My husband and I were married in Negril 2 years ago in September. The people are wonderful and we can't wait to go back.
