According to Mrs. Warwas, I drive and party like an 85 year old grandpa.

I’m not quite that old, but today does mark the occasion on which I get one year closer to being 85.  Hey, maybe by the time I actually get there the Vikings will have found a home other than the Metrodome, won a Super Bowl, and celebrated Cris Carter’s induction into the Hallf of Fame.

Maybe.

Today, I received a really great gift in the form of a gift certificate for DonorsChooose.org.  Those of you that have followed me for a while now know that I like to use my little corner of the internet, combined with slow periods of the offseason, to promote Donors Choose and the great work they do to help fund projects for grade schools around the country.

Particularly, I enjoy finding football related projects to promote on the site.

In my time at Vikings Gab, the generous readers fully funded a project that built an equipment shed in a poverty stricken area of Chicago that allowed the players, many of which were homeless, leave their gear at school instead of bringing it to the shelter with them or risk theft.

Prior to that, we had all chipped in to fund a flag football project for an economically challenged school in Kansas.

Now that I have my own website, I have decided to create a DonorsChoose.org Giving Page for Vikings Territory which can be found by clicking here.  Instead of highlighting one particular project every offseason, I will update the page with a variety of worthy (and football related) projects all year long.

Donors Choose is a very trustworthy and user friendly site and I would like to invite each of you to become a member of our giving page by clicking here.  There are no donations too small, as every little bit helps, and the best birthday gift I could get would be to see our membership numbers go from the current “2” and move into double-digits by the end of the weekend.

Thanks for considering it!
