Midwest Bus Tour!

The bus rolls on though not running too far from home this week going just across Lake Michigan and then back to Madison.

Cousin Stan turned me on (via facebook) to the Down Syndrome Research and Treatment Foundation, a group that is looking to improve cognitive abilities on those with Downs Syndrome. His funny, lovely daughter, my, lessee here, second cousin (?) is in that group so dollars directed this way have a personal impact as well.

My lovely bride turned up another grass roots effort right here in Madison. There’s a group that gets together with a fantastic twist on the old networking party. It is all of that, but every gathering also has a designated charitable focus. At their most recent meeting, they raised almost $600 for the Breast Cancer Recover Fund. The target for the next meeting is picked out of a hat from the suggestions offered by the group. Already this year, they’ve raise almost $1,500 for local charities. They call it Fun, Food and Philanthropy, with this particular group led by Melanie Schmidt of the Timpano Group
