D@W-National Update: 
 
The Lannon Foundation has granted us a $30,000 challenge grant.  This means every dollar donated up to $30,000 thru the d@w website is doubled by the Foundation thru Sept. 30th.   If you have ever wanted to help d@w-National fundraise, this would be the time.  Help us spread the word through your groups, your pages, friends and family.  The d@w-National team will be posting about this on the main website very soon.
