Day 132: Wore Red, White and Blue

Unfortunately, due to her being on an early morning flight to California with my wife, I can not exploit my daughter's cuteness on the blog today.  That is why you see a picture of my bony wrist at the top.  Today is the last day of our "Wore [Insert Color] Week" and it has been great having the opportunity to learn about a number of important causes.  This morning, on my way to a work training, I learned of another cause that I hadn't heard of before.  The Create Jobs for USA Program "provides loans to underserved community business, which include small businesses, microenterprises, nonprofit organizations, commercial real estate, and affordable housing".  The ultimate goal of the program is to create new jobs and sustain economic growth in communities throughout the country.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I purchased and am wearing a red, white and blue bracelet that represents the Create Jobs for USA program.  100% of  the money donated for the bracelet goes towards the program and so far, over 2,300 jobs have been created and sustained through the program.  I think everyone can agree that new jobs are a good thing.
