What a Swell Party It Was!

Sugar's House Party
Sugar and all her canine pals had a fabulous time at the house party she hosted in support of Sit Stay Read. The dogs romped on the beach, people partied, and $3,300 was raised to help kids from Chicago's inner city learn to read! Click on the photo to see all the fun.

A huge thank you to Sugar and her people--Doug and Jim--for all their work to make the first Sit Stay Read house party a terrific success. You're the best!

BTW, if you missed Sugar on the the NBC Nightly News, be sure to check it out here.

If Not Now, When?

”In the course of history, there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground. A time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other.”

--From Wangari Maathai's Nobel Lecture, delivered in Oslo, 10 December 2004.
