Become a “12th Man”!
The “12th man” is a sports term used in football and soccer (which have 11-man teams) that refers to the fans and supporters who aren’t physically on the playing field, but who never-the-less give the team the strength and inspiration to do their best.
Absolute fact: We can’t do this without you.
We do not charge clients for our visits, and we receive no government support – our work is funded completely by contributions from people and organizations that recognize the value of what we teach.

Are You An Online Shopper?
One of the easiest ways to help is by signing up for a free iGive.com account. iGive is a free service where shopping at any of 1403 stores like Amazon, Travelocity, Overstock, Staples, Best Buy and many more, causes those stores to donate a tiny percentage of the sale.
That’s right, it comes out of their pocket, not yours! It’s easy, particularly if you get the iGive Button for your browser when you sign up – iGive does all the paperwork and keeps you posted on what’s going on. CLICK HERE to check it out!
