This week has come to an end and although I haven's spoken to any organizations, I have received donations.  I want to thank IBEW Local 31 in Duluth for the donation to the Minnesota Miracle.  And as I stated when I sent them my thank you, everyday brings us closer to reaching our goal.
  I'm hoping all of Minnesota and the rest of the nation, celebrates this coming 4th of July safely and ask all to remember that freedom doesn't come free.  We all must strive to give back for the freedom we share with all of our neighbors and freinds.  And providing the mere meal on the table for some that can't provide that is part of what makes Minnesota a great State!

A good week has been seen.  First of all I want to thank LetterTech for the work they did.  I added some design to my G6 to put the Minnesota Miracle in the eyes of those I share the road with.  And they donated their hard work on it.  Thanks again men!
  Last week I had the opportunity of sharing what's coming with Amy Brendmoen.  As a coucilwoman with the St. Paul City Council, she's assured me that a "resolution" of support from the city wouldn't be a problem to attain.  They did just that on my last endeavor when I crossed the nation with the hopes and dreams that were destined for space!  Wanting to become more involved I found myself speaking with Jake Spano who's connection to the Mayor's office and is another good thing.  We all share the understanding that the Governor would like to hear about the effort. So we'll see where this goes. I'm schedule to speak in Mankato on July 10th and am anxious to share the Minnesota Miracle with those attending.
  In the meantime I received information that my Union, Branch28, has agreed to get the word out to every letter carrier in the state.  They were my backbone while I bicycled across the country in 2007 and once again are in my corner to help find success.  Thanks to all my brothers and sisters!
  There's so much more to comment on but it would be too hard to name all that have come on board with this effort.  Though I will in time.  Stay tuned ~~~

Another good week is coming to an end.  I had the privilege of talking with the individuals in Rochester that show the strength of their Unions and members and this morning got great news.  They've decided to donate $2,000.00 to the Minnesota Miracle.  But more important is that they'll do all within their power to take the miracle beyond their territory.  And the note I received this morning told me they'll be there on May 4, 2014 to share the walk in on the final day!  Thank you Laura for receiving me with what made me feel like family when I left!
  I also met with Jennifer and Jacob with the Channel One Regional Food Bank and again was received with enthusiasm and support.  I found the need for food in the Rochester area is growing every day so my goal takes on more meaning.  And my family of friends doing they're best to eliminate it, continues to grow.  I'll keep everyone up on things as they progress over the coming months.  And thank all of you for giving so much of yourselves to help those in need!
