I want to thank Sozment for starting a thread on the Ros2 board about this
Happy Birthday Bill!!! We love you, we adore you..we think you’re the greatest!!!!! Here’s wishing you many many many more birthdays!!!!!
Now, for the present.
I enlisted help on this one from Mama C. I felt that you were probably tired of all the “southern foods/cds/ect..) that I (with help from my fellow Bill Board members) had been sending you, so I thought we should do something different.
She suggested that we help out on the “Heifer Project”. I went to the website www.heifer.org and read up on the project. Is it an excellent project. Here is a bit about it (for you other Bill fans)
Heifer animals (and training in their care) offer hungry families around the world a way to feed themselves and become self-reliant. Children receive nutritious milk or eggs; families earn income for school, health care and better housing; communities go beyond meeting immediate needs to fulfilling dreams. Farmers learn sustainable, environmentally sound agricultural techniques.
So, for your birthday present this year, we are collecting any donations from people (in YOUR honor)for this project. If you would like to contribute to Bill’s birthday gift, please send a paypal donation to firstname.lastname@example.org and make a note that it is for the Heifer project. On Monday, I will send every single penny to the Heifer Project along with a note stating that it is for Bill’s birthday, and I will send a card to Bill, da man, himself with every name listed that made a donation. So, Bill, your present will be a few days late, but the thought is still there. We adore you. You are THE MAN!!!
***if you don’t feel that you want to contribute to the project, please leave your birthday wishes for Bill. He is a wonderful man, as we all know.
