* Blessings in a Backpack (L)
"Because Hunger... Doesn't take a break on the weekend"

"This program is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of children and families over weekends. The Blessings in a Backpack is a program being initiated through the efforts of concerned citizens. Every Thursday afternoon, volunteers will fill selected student's backpacks with non-perishable food items and pass them out to students on fridays at the end of the school day. ... It is our hopes that this program can be expanded to other schools across the country in the near future. If you wish to become involved in this excellent program, please review our How to get Involved and Contact pages."

Walking With Freedom -
"Michael Daniel (aka "LionKing") is an addictive long distance hiker with over 10,000 miles hiked since 1998. He has section thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail, from Georgia to Maine with over 8,000 combined miles in over 8 years, he has thru-hiked the John Muir Trail in 2002 as well as The Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada in 2006.

As well as hiking/walking, he is also a published writer and short filmmaker, actor, director, and editor. Michael has two documentaries: the Film Festival winning, "Walking With Freedom" and his brand new film on The Pacific Crest Trail, "Walking West With Freedom."

This hike on The American Discovery Trail will be his longest continuous walk in his history of trails. Totaling over 6,000 miles from coast to coast, including the center US loop, it will be the first time ever a person has walked non-stop the entire length of the American Discovery trail in one trip using only their feet.

This trip will also be one of community service, as Michael hopes to raise money for the American Heart Association over the course of nearly a year of walking. You can donate directly through the site, or by contacting your local AMA."
