Re: [CFI-Austin] A memorial brick for the Murray-O'Hairs

Hey Joe,

I gave $25 for the brick this morning. If things are going well maybe you could go for the 12x12 brick.
It occurred to me that maybe you get a few more bucks with a mailing address for checks but I may be wrong in this plastic world.

At the rate that we're getting donations and pledges of donations,
I'll probably order it inside of the next few weeks. Then it'll take a
few more weeks for the paperwork, creation and installation of the
brick. I'll try real hard to get a firm date for that, and have some
kind of small ceremony there when it's being installed. Those who know
the Murray-O'Hairs personally are invited to speak at that.

Anyone can help right now by going to the AHH website and making an
online donation: www.AtheistsHelpingtheHomeless.org  We're almost
there too. We've gotten over $340 in donations paid and pledged. $500.
is our goal. :o)
