Working on something not scheduled

Hey hey everybody,

I don't know if any of you watch CBS Sunday Morning, but there was a clip on yesterday that really caught my attention.

In Boston, there is a bar called the Bull & Finch -- Cheers was based on it. For 35 years, a fella named Eddie Doyle worked there and he became kind of a celebrity during that time. He used his time to start a charity called Cheers for Kids, which gave a lot of money to Boston charities, including a children's cancer hospital.

As you might guess, Eddie Doyle was laid off suddenly, and once his employment ends, so will his charity work.

I have e-mailed the Caps for a Cure group to see if anyone has any contacts at the CAM Neely foundation, and I have also sent a couple of e-mails. I would really like to send a bunch of blankets and caps if they let us so that the kids and their families know that they aren't forgotten, and I'd like the donation to be made in honor of Eddie's years of hard work so that he knows the good work will continue.

If anyone is interested in participating, that would be great!

I'll kee ya posted...in the meantime, here is a story similar to what CBS ran yesterday...
