Since June, 2006, I have been helping Home Works of America repair homes of elderly, low-income homeowners. It has been extremely satisfying, and I don't know any possible way that an organization could get more bang for the donated buck than Home Works does.
We use donated warehouse space and trucks and trailers to move supplies and tools to and from the homes we are working on. Here is a shot of me driving a 1987 Dodge truck that we still use, as a last resort.
Toyota is giving away one vehicle per day for 100 days, on Face Book, to charitable organizations. 500 organizations were approved to compete, and five of them are in the running on each of the 100 days. TODAY is the day for Home Works. If you have a Facebook account, please log in at this link and cast your vote for Home Works. Voting is allowed until midnight. After voting, you will get a report on the current status of the race.
If you don't have a Facebook account, please forward the email to someone who does.
Please excuse this unusual request. I appreciate your interest in my blog and will not normally be asking readers to do anything except read, but this seemed to be a special case, and the race is very close.
