Hi Charles, (my hubby)

We know that many causes have had a hard year, so we'd like to try something new to
help Ranch Hope, Inc. that requires your participation, but is free and definitely easy. is going to attempt to donate $5,000 in just 24 hours to Ranch Hope, Inc. and other causes.

site between now and noon Thursday, we'll give Ranch Hope, Inc. a dollar.

this e-mail.
