Big News and Notes

Not even 24 hours after what I believe was one of the biggest days yet in the project, things got even bigger!  I was surprised by a tweet from ESPN personality, Mark Simon, that he included my project at the end of his and Eric Karabell's nationally broadcast sports radio show "Baseball Today".  Although it was just a couple minutes at the end, I felt that I was on top of the world when I heard it.  It means so much to me that people from ESPN would even consider talking about this project.  Click here if you would like to take a listen to the recording.  If you want to skip to the part about the project, start around the 47:30 mark and you will hear it shortly there after. 

It doesn't end there either.  I had a man call me out of the blue and offer up $100 as a donation to the project.  It is the first of hopefully many donations to come.  I will use that money to cover transportation costs for the child and family or for any other costs the family may have.  You can make a donation on the right side of the page if you would like to do so!

Last, but certainly not least, my fraternity brother from college gave me a call and said that his news station, WAND Decatur, was going to be coming out and doing a story with me about the project sometime in the next week.  So in the next week or so this project will be published again in print, I will appear live on radio, and there will be a story on television.  This couldn't get much better and I can't wait for the next trade!  As always shoot me an email at if you have any ideas or would like to trade!  Thanks so much for all of the support and please follow along for all update on twitter @TwoBlueDice.
