Hot Guys and Volunteerism

The latest in a long line of amazing and supportive ideas is that the community wants to raise monetary donations for us to take with us when we finally travel to pick up Little Bear and use as seems to best fit needs when we get there possibly orphanages, schools, etc.

I think it is pretty much "win win" all around!
