Giving Back

As of January 1, 2008 we are donating a minimum 5 – 8% of our profit per year  to the wonderful organizations listed below.   We are very fortunate to run a moderately successful and profitable company and welcome the opportunity to give back.    We hope to slowly work up to eventually donating 10% of our profit.   We hope that you will research and donate to these or other charities of your choice.
