Lady Di...takin' the plunge :)

I am not very computer savy, here is the info with the challenge....

Lady Di's BIGGBY Challenge to fellow Baristas and corporate amigos:
a $1.00 donation. If each Barista will contribute one slim buck and my corporate amigos pony up one slim buck, I believe I can do some damage. Are you up for the challenge? If so, put someone in charge, collect from your fellow Baristas, or co-workers, post the contributions, (checks made out to special olympics) in the mail to Biggby Coffee, P.O. Box 600, Gaylord, MI 49734
Let's see what we can do, and even if you are not a Barista or a corporate amigo and you are a loyal Biggby fan, compelled to contribute,
Please feel free to add your donation by mailing it to the Gaylord P.O Box. In return, special olympics benefit and I promise to post pictures from the HUGE event.
thanks and as always, MUCH BIGGBY LOVE

Great picture! If it wasn't for your shirt billowing at the sleeve, it could almost be you standing on a dock with a tow rope! ;)

I'll see if I can get some of the muckety-mucks around here to pony up a buck or two--it's a very worthy cause, and the Polar Bear event is sure to generate some great pics too!

Thanks, Barista Lady Di! -JD
