A great friend of mine, Andrew Goodman, recently wrote to tell us about a new contest and program being done by a site called AppliancePros.com. These guys are friends of Andrew's, and instead of just saying they support the troops, they're doing something about it. Here's the story about packages sent for Thanksgiving; they're now working on the ones for Christmas. You have until Dec. 17 to help. You can enter their contest, send a donation, spread the word about the program, or contact Tamera Kremer (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out what you can do. (And by the way, while you're on the site, check out the great selection of appliance parts they have. It's a great source for do-it-yourselfers. ) AppliancePros.com
