Now THIS is what we'd call "Doing It Right" . . .

Three of Michael's buddies (in diving and "real" life) have decided they'd like to be the ones to push Michael past the $10K mark and EACH of them has stepped up with a $1000 donation!!!!!

When we last left our story, we were at $8000. Kendal Raine, Troy Bagwell, and Terry May wanted to be the ones to push Michael over the edge (metaphorically speaking). Their combined donations (and generosity) now take the Michael Kane $10K Chamber Challenge to $11,000. We want to take a moment to thank Kendal, Troy, and Terry, along with ALL the other donors, for helping us reach our initial goal.

But that doesn't mean this ends here.

Last year, we were able to raise almost $22,000 when all was said and done. We'd certainly like to hit that mark or even surpass it this year. Michael, along with those who have contributed so far, certainly recognize the need for a Chamber available to us on a 24/7/365 basis. And those of us who dive is SoCal, due to the nature of the way the funding for our Chamber is structured, MUST be willing to kick in a few bucks here and there to ensure that the hyperbaric safety net so many divers have come to reply upon, is available to us year-round. The chances of you needing our Chamber are slim, but if you do . . .

So let's keep the ball rolling!!!! Michael's initial $10K along with the $11K we've raised so far hopefully provides the seed and impetus for YOU to make a donation too. We've still got over three weeks to go so we ask what we always do in these cases . . .
