      That perhaps is one of the unforeseen flaws of the now ex "new thing". Don't take the non participation as lack of support in your effort. It may just be people have other priorities in what they are supporting right now.

        HELP- HIM OUT!!!

        It's ALSO for a SUPER GOOD CAUSE !!

        Read Below !!!


        The Cause: The Legendary Mount Washington Observatory
        Since 1932, hardy observers have lived and worked in one of the most extreme places on Earth–the summit of New Hampshire's Mount Washington. Bitter cold, dense fog, heavy snow and legendary wind combine to make the mountain a truly harsh place. In fact, the fastest surface wind gust in the world was recorded by the staff of the Mount Washington Observatory in April of 1934, an astonishing 231 miles per hour! To this day, scientists, educators, interns and volunteers live and work on the summit of the northeast's tallest peak, observing and documenting the "world's worst weather".
        Off the mountain, cutting edge research takes place at the Observatory's Bartlett Research Facility. In collaboration with partners such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Science Foundation, University of New Hampshire and many others, Mount Washington Observatory conducts important research in regional air quality, mountain weather and climate, marine atmospheric chemistry and instrument siting.
        For more than a decade, Observatory outreach educators have traveled across the region in a Subaru "Weathermobile" bringing interactive weather programs into classrooms, libraries, science centers, and other locations. Observatory educators teach children and adults about the fundamentals of our weather and climate, and the complex natural systems of our environment. New for 2009, students across the nation now have the ability to connect with weather observers at the summit through videoconferencing technology. This new Distance Learning program will help educate students about weather and climate with the mountain's notorious extremes as a captivating backdrop.
        In our Weather Discovery Center science museum in North Conway Village, NH, visitors explore unique, hands-on exhibits, which educate about the fundamentals of weather and Mount Washington's extreme conditions. Additionally, two daily "Live from the Rockpile" presentations, offered by Observatory summit staff via video conference, give museum visitors a real-time look at life on the mountain. These unique, interactive programs also help visitors understand how weather works, how weather observations are made and what goes into the making of a forecast.
        For an inside look at the Mount Washington Observatory, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, including current conditions, webcams, forums and extensive weather information, visit www.MountWashington.org.

            This cause is a bit politically charged right now also.

              That's not exactly what I meant. An example is I am a contributing member to the Los Angeles Zoo and do whatever I can to support it because it is local to me and we enjoy taking the grand-kids there. In contrast, I would expect Josh to want to donate to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo before he donated to the Los Angeles Zoo. That does not however mean he does not support my efforts.

                if any one that was going to do a walk -a -thon or any thing like that to support something i would try to help because they are not just asking for money they are out there doing some thing to show there support .
                i give to relay for life because people are out there walking to get support from people .
                so i will give to your zoo if they had a fundraiser where you went and worked there for support .
                im hiking up a mountain 8 mi round trip and 10 hr time to show my commitment to the cause and i also gave $ .
                thats just how i see it and every one has there own thoughts also .

                so i was not trying to offend or point out any one that looked at this thread and did not comment or help me out . and if i did im sorry it was not what i was trying to say or do
