Congrats to the gelato home team!

"Tèo is so happy to have won "People's Choice" at the Gelato World Tour! What an honor! Thank you to everyone who tasted "Texas Pecan Pie" and voted for it in the competition. We're proud to take this title back to Austin!"

The new Crowdrise profile for Freedom Flyers has just been launched, and it is moving right along. This is my first experience setting-up a Crowdrise profile on behalf of a nonprofit organization, and helping them learn how to manage a campaign. Excellent customer service at Crowdrise, I must say. The platform is good-looking and I think Freedom Flyers will also make use it for those wishing to make online donations of a general nature (as well as campaigns). Very helpful for small nonprofits.
Freedom Flyers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to honor veterans for their service to America. Freedom Flyers also honors community heroes like firefighters, police, emergency management technicians, teachers and others who have made a positive difference.

One more week to make this dream possible! Sharing my thoughts on Carolyn's Tumblr.
These jams are good! Consider supporting the Kickstarter so we may have more of them. I love the clever names, like “David Blue Bowie,” “Sonny and Pear,” “Johnny Cashew” and more.

I became acquainted with Artspace via a young artist whose work I like, Michael Menchaca (he sells some work on the platform). As a university trained art historian, I enjoyed this article and comparison. I am an Independent voter, but I think they are on track here.
