The Montana Project

I suspect most of you have already seen The Senator's post today on the results of The Montana Project.



I hope folks enjoy the video, and my thanks go out to Hoppy Hopkins and his team for a great job. I hope folks realize how time consuming it can be to edit a video like that, not to mention the time spent shooting.

When we conceived this idea there were a lot of folks asking to contribute financially. But primarily because of Hoppy and another Dawg in Montana (K. Shockley, who provided the helmet and covered shipping costs) there weren't really expenses worth spreading around.

But because I know the Bulldog Nation is a generous one, and because I believe ridiculous gestures should be paired with meaningful ones, I propose a way for Dawg fans to contribute to this effort, which is really  just about confirming and increasing UGA's reputation. Please join me in making a donation to a Montana-based charity.

Hoppy has suggested the Great Falls Public Schools Foundation, which works with the local schools in Great Falls, where he lives and where the video was shot. If you like, send them a check and write "From Montana's friends at the University of Georgia" in the "for" line. Their mailing address is:
Dave Crum, Community Connections Manager
c/o Foundation Donation
Great Falls Public Schools
1100 4th Street South, Great Falls, MT 59404
Hoppy says it's a worthy cause, helping students and teachers alike.

We thought about paypal, but you don't need me collecting your money just to send somewhere else. Also, if this foundation isn't your bag, the special olympics of montana is based ingreat falls. Let's show montana some love.
