Lots of motion in the ocean!

Well friends, thanks for tolerating the little piece of creative writing below. Save for the poetic license, that little story about my iPhone is absolutely true. What a hoot!

As promised, here is where things stand for us right now.

The original goal was to raise $4,100.
At present, we have been blessed with $3,321.00!!!

That was QUITE the hill to climb. Careless on my part? Perhaps.
But you guys are proving that COMMUNITY WORKS!

We are SO THANKFUL to all of you who have joined us in this vision.
Friends and family alike have accepted this challenge with us and we are making some real progress with this opportunity.

As I have said before, we have taken your contributions very seriously and have been working very hard to make the most of this month. So far, the success has been remarkable. Thanks again.

For those who still wish to get involved, we are in need of a remaining $779.00. This amount will "seal the deal" and keep us from going bottom-up in any department. To be clear, we are NOT asking for ongoing support. This is NOT a long-term commitment. Rather, we are asking you for a one-time contribution toward our expenses for this month, thereby allowing me to work at home on several key pieces of promotional material.

If you wish to help us with the final amount... in any way... please don't delay any longer. Our time is running out. So far the largest contribution has been $1,000. The smallest has been $100. But let's be clear, if 39 people gave $20, we would be out of the woods. You get the picture.

The point is, ANY amount will help.

If you wish to send us some support, you may do so one of two ways:

For those who would like a tax-deductible receipt please make your check out to ReNET and designate it for “Haiti”. ReNET is acting as our 501(c)3 umbrella while our own application is in process. You may then mail that check to

2867 N. 200 E.
Anderson IN 46012.

If you don’t need a receipt then you can just make the check out to Luke Renner and send it to us directly. If you wanna do that, let me know and I will email you our home address.

Either way, I would appreciate an email alerting me to the incoming support so that I can keep track of where we’re at.

If you look to the side-bar, you will see that we are continuing to add more information. Turns out we are getting quite a few eyeballs on our blog now and more and more folks are wondering what in the blue-blazes the CIMT is. Now those questions have been answered.

Also, I am compiling a F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions) entry. If any of you have always wanted to ask anything of us, now would be a time to drop me an email and let me see if it can be added to that document.

Okee Dokee. Stay tuned! More news coming!
