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!
