Here is a couple pictures from the Florida clean up day that we had this morning but first my cool new shirt with my new bling.
For those of you who don't know we have 2 community garden projects that is called #EATING project and we started with support from Mgoblogers so the pictures you are looking at are from the First garden in me and Martavious Odoms hometown Pahokee, Florida. It is called the H.O.P.E. Garden
Our new project here in Michigan is in Flint and we are putting a garden on an Alumni' grandma's old houses lot and also workign with 2 Elementary Schools to create gardening programs through the school year and summer to get the lead out their bodies.
You can read more and support Flint #EATING effort by coming to help and at our gofundme at https://www.gofundme.com/feedflint (or feedflint.org)
Was just browsing through some titles on Amazon.com and came across Muck City by Bryan Mealer (no apparent relation to Elliot & Brock), which was just released Oct. 23, 2012. It apparently centers on high school football in Belle Glade, Florida, which is about eight miles from Pahokee (and also in the muck). I have to wait 5-7 days for my copy to arrive, but can promise an mgobookreport after that (if nobody beats me to it). Here's a LINK to the amazon page for anyone else who wants to check it out.
Felt great to be back in the "Big House",even though I wasn't on the field with my gear on playing. It felt great to watch my brothers get that win. I'm very proud of them. We're still undefeated in the "Big House". We all know what this week means. 11-24-2012. Words can't explain "The Game". Go Blue!!
First I want to apologize for missing the tailgate part of the game, I tried to get back from Florida as soon as possible and got stuck at the Atlanta airport. But that won't happen this week. I am in Ann Arbor already and I am ready.
We want to visit as many tailgates as we can so if you see me running around outside the stadium or wherever and want me to stop by just let me know. [email protected].
Since I know we had issues with this during the HTTV Kickstarter and people asked about this repeatedly during the Hope for Pahokee one...
If you purchased any kind of reward in the Hope for Pahokee Kickstarter you need to go complete your reward survey. That survey was emailed out at 2 pm this afternoon (at least mine was). The survey is to provide information about size, color, mailing address, etc for your reward. Until you give Kickstarter this information, your reward won't ship. So go check your email, whichever address you registered with kickstarter, and follow the directions to complete the reward. The email comes from: [email protected] if you need to search for it.
As a FYI, Odoms said he thinks everything will ship out by early Nov. Remember he's not running a large organization and 999 are getting shipped t-shirts, hoodies, etc, so this could take awhile. Plus he needs to get those gardens planted.
