    Hi all,

    Just tossing up an idea here I got on the trip back home from Flagstaff.

    On a rest stop, Habitat For Humaity had a public info display. This got me thinking. (yeah I know it's scary :p )

    The folks in PFF have ALOT of skills that this organization could use. We build props, costumes, Lightsabers, Blasters, and now I can add Deathstar walls to the list.

    What if we where all to donate one day this year to this really noble cause. I'm thinking a single day, or maybe even a once a year thing here.

    I know how to hold a hammer, turn a bolt, twist a screwdriver almost as good as any Astromech Driod. I'm sure I would feel really good to know that my skills helped another less fortunate than I.

    What time of the year, month, week, is good for you all? I'm thinking the Fall on a weekend. All we need to do is give up 1/365 days in the coming year. Giving only time and labor.

    Dave.

    I went to their website [link=http://www.habitataz.org/index.html]Habitataz.org[/link] tonight and requested volunteer info. I don't have a spacific contact (yet). I'll fill everyone in as more info and decisions come about.

    It looks as though thay have many ways for people to help. Even better. We have ALOT of talent here. I know we can do alot of good. I'm so wanting to do this. :D

    I'm surprised Subjugator hasn't posted here criticizing everyone for not doing something like this sooner. ;)

    Seriously, count me in.

    Sorry, Subj, I hate to run, but I'm off to bed. I'd love to continue this wonderful conversation at another time, though.

    If you don't mind, that is.

    :)

    Power tools are a good thing. Especially in the right hands. Vroom Vroom.
