    Love seeing that needle go up! Are you on pace to meet your goal?

    Thank you for your constantly love and prayers Person! And Adam, if we keep this pace up The Marin Foundation will recieve $196,000 in donations in 2010! Now that is still well short of $316,000 but considering that The Marin Foundation’s biggest ever donation year was last year at $79,000; $196,000 looks HUGE!!!!!

    I am still, however, bold enough to pray that God is going to do a miracle on this front, where over $300,000 doesn’t seem possible. Amen to that!
