Thumbs up Totally OT - but well worthwhile

Guys, this has nothing to do with officiating, or even basketball in general. But it is a very worthy thing for everyone to do. My wife is a long time volunteer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation here in Oregon. As you may know, Make-A-Wish grants wishes to children who have life threatening medical conditions. This year, one of their sponsors is Macy's. For every "letter to Santa" someone brings in to any Macy's store and deposits in their Santa mailbox, Macy's will donate $1.00 to Make-A-Wish up to one million dollars!

Please - if you have a kid and/or grandkid, help them take a letter to Santa in this season. It's fun for them and you'll be helping a great cause. Thanks.

OT or Not...

Thanks for posting this Mark. If you remember me from the forum last year, you may recall I am a fellow Oregonian. (Eugene, OR).

Although many of us cannot afford to even donate a dollar to such a good cause, I think I could manage a letter to santa! I have 6 nieces/nephews, so least I could do is get them on board if Macy's is footing-the-bill.
