    Wonderful. It's great to be in a position to give and want to give.

We brought down an extra large suitcase full of crayons, markers, stickers, coloring books, and notepads for the kids. Upon picking up our ring, I told this story to the owners of Shiva’s that we have known for 30 years and they volunteered to contribute also! I then learned that they had contributed 1000 backpacks full of supplies for the kids at the beginning of the school year and they were willing to do more on behalf of our friend! We passed this information onto our friend at the Ritz and she was overwhelmed! At this point, our vacation recap seems frivolous so I will post another recap of the last two days.
    What a great story of genuine kindness. Very nice.

    What a great gesture. I'm sure all involved are beyond thankful.
    I want to grow my own food, but I can't find any bacon seeds...
