We finally begin....

Things are finally moving with regards to Jack's fund. We had our first meeting last week to start to plan the Golf Tournament (tentatively scheduled right now for September 29th at Hawke Point).

There's going to be an article about Jack and his fund in our local paper on Thursday and I'm hoping that really helps get the word out about his charity and the golf tournament. So many people have already been incredibly generous in their donations so we are off to a good start! We've begun really looking for the first child to help with the fund, and a few other things are in the works, which I'll save to share when they're further along.

I'm excited to really start doing something with this. Jack has shown us time and time again over the last 4 months that he's still 'here' and still touching so many people. It's time I started to keep my promise to him and help him continue to change the world for the better.

the blog looks amazing...As I sit here in the hospital with my own Jack, I think of your Jack often... Oh and in regards to the other site, and the blogging mishaps, I get that constantly as well. I've just chalked it up recently to my brain not being all the way there.

I look forward to raising money from my Etsy site once I get it up and going and then mailing a big check to your fund for Jack.
