Help out some talented children

Dave and I have 7 nieces and nephews. I know we're biased, but we think they're all incredible. Seth is a future soccer star, Aubryn an artist and violinist, Ashleigh is a ballet princess, Adam is a mathematician, Jeremiah and Bradon excel in everything they do, and Sara is a writer.

Ashleigh recently joined the Imagine Ballet Theatre, a pre-professional ballet company. She passed stringent auditions and we're so proud of her. The Imagine Ballet Theatre is non-profit and donations really help. I'm not asking you to give your hard-earned money. What I'm asking is a lot easier to do.

My sister told me about a search engine that gives money to charities for each search. Just type in 'imagine ballet theatre.' My sister has been doing it for a couple of months and noticed how it adds up, and yes, they have received money for it (not much yet, though).

If you have another charity of choice (but, of course, I would love it if you supported the Imagine Ballet Theatre), an easy way to help this organization or any other cause you care about is through this new Yahoo!-powered search engine and online shopping mall called GoodSearch.com. The more people who use this site, the more money will go to those in need. So please spread the word to your friends and family. Here's the web site — http://www.goodsearch.com/. You can also read about GoodSearch in the NY Times, Oprah Magazine, CNN, ABC News and the Wall Street Journal.

Thank you in advance for helping out Ashleigh's ballet company.

Wow! Congratulations to Ashleigh. I really can imagine her dancing and it's great that she has the opportunity to do so!
Very glad to hear that the pregnancy is going well!
Hope to hear from you soon!
