It truly is an amazing community of smart, supportive, funny and feisty women we have here! I am grateful for each and every one of you!

China Still Needs our Help!

I know that many of you have sent in donations already in response to the earthquake in China. Chris has found another group that donates 100% of the donations to assist those impacted by the earthquake.

Silicon Valley Tsinghua Network (SVTN) is a non-profit organization registered in Northern California with IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, formed in 1999. SVTN is a public charity non-profit organization.

On May 12th, 2008, an 8.0 magnitude earthquake in China's south-western Sichuan province has killed more than 40,000 people. SVTN setup the "China Earthquake Relief Fund" to help victims suffering from this massive earthquake within 24 hours of the quake.

The Sichuan Earthquake Relief Committee (SERC) was originally formed by some organizations to promote and support "SVTN's China Earthquake Relief Fund" efforts. SERC was initiated by Silicon Valley Tsinghua Network, MITBBS, and Legal Immigrant Association (LIA). Now, there are about 30 organizations in United States joined the SERC efforts to help victims.

SVTN's China Earthquake Relief Fund is entirely volunteer-based, with zero overhead and completely transparent accounting methods of operations. SVTN's China Earthquake Relief Fund provides a fast and convenient donation platform to channel funds from all individuals, corporations, and organizations eager to help in this mission of outreach and good will to earthquake victims.

All donations to SVTN's China Earthquake Relief Fund will be 100% transferred to Red Cross Society of China, as they have the established infrastructure to render direct and immediate disaster relief to earthquake victims in Sichuan province of China.

Tsinghua Challenge Education Foundation (TCEF) is a subsidiary foundation under SVTN. The mission of TCEF is: To promote Tsinghua educational development and academic research; To help create equal opportunities for fellow Chinese students and facilitate overseas charitable efforts for China during emergency.

Still Looking and Need Your Help....

Hi all. We continue to hope to find Jazzie. Our local paper posted an online article about Hannah and Jazzie the week we lost Jazzie. I am reluctantly posting a link to the article in the hope that readers of our blog will link, join the "community" and recommend the story. (it has our last name. If you are a freak who is going to stalk my warned I will kick your ass. nuff said) It takes 2 seconds to join the community so you can vote. The news paper changed the format so all of those who voted to recommend the story last week, I need you to vote again if possible. If we get enough votes the article will move to the newspaper homepage. Roselee, the writer who posted Hannah's story is working on another story about lost pets. If Hannah's story gets enough recommendations she will have an easier time convincing her editor to run the story.


Thank you for all your prayers, good wishes and emails. This has been hard for all of us. We have not lost hope. We believe someone has Jazzie and just doesn't know how desperate we are to find her.....

We have 4 weeks left of school. The last month is always crazy. I hope you are here when I come back....

Peace,Love and Prayers

Continue to Pray.....

We ask you to help us find Jazzie,
our dear pet who is now lost.
We know that you placed animals on the earth
for many reasons, including companionship for man.
We therefore ask you to help us find our lost companion,
and pray that You will keep Jazzie safe
and protect her from harm until she is found.
We join our prayers with St. Francis,
St. Anthony of Padua, and all the saints,
and pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Still no Jazzie. Someone called and said they saw her Wednesday night towards downtown...not such a great thing. I am hoping that the dog catcher picks her up, or if someone gets her that they see one of 100 fliers that we have posted and handed out Thursday. Hannah and I are having a hard time. Keep praying and hoping that Jazzie finds her way back home to us soon.
