Update July 1, 2009

Jon Ross on Jul 1st 2009


I want to thank everyone for the good wishes and support since the launch of the website.  We are doing pretty well with the fundraising thanks to board members Les Winter and Nadia Block, and the generosity of friends, and strangers.  Raising the $52K for the Sri Lanka projects may take a little more time in this economic environment, but we will get there!  I just hope the good people I met in December don’t lose faith that I am coming back to help.  They have heard that too many times since the devastation of the tsunami in 2004.  At any rate, we will get there as fast as we’re able.  So please, ask anyone you know to donate whatever they can.  Every little bit helps.

Also, big shout-out to Marcus Vadas for the redesign of the MicroAid logo!

Here in Los Angeles, the houses I was working on for Habitat for Humanity are complete and the partner families are moving in soon.  Hard to believe that I helped build three houses from the ground up.  The skills I acquired along the way wil prove invaluable in doing the construction projects in Sri Lanka.

I hope everyone is doing well.  Have a great July!

Jon
