Build the Dream!

Sister Liz mentioned this to me when I was at home. Apparently, I'm really late on this one because they've been raising money for over a year now. For what, you ask? Why the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial! That's what. (I know, I know. I thought the government paid for those things too!) Do watch the "virtual tour." It has really pleasant sounding Mr. Rogers type jazz in the background.

Apparently, there's a federal matching grant for up to $10 million dollars which means--you guessed it--the foundation really wants to get those pledges in and they're trying to do so by the end of the year.

Every person in America has benefitted from the work of Dr. King either directly or indirectly. I say, help them out AND if you give $30 dollars or more, you can get the lovely t-shirt pictured on the right. When we hang out we can wear them at the same time and people will think we're twins. ;0)

That, right there, was worth the donation. Of course, if I wear this on the Left Coast, and you're down South, will people mistake us for each other until we're together? ;o)
