OOPS!! Scenic Shore 150

I just went to and discovered I needed to set-up a fundrasing page! I did that so, now you should be able to donate if you believe in the cause.

I plan to donate $50. I set my my personal goal at $500. I think it's a bit lofty since I've never done pledging before. I need a minimum of $250 by July 9,2007. Thanks!!
