The End of the Beginning

I've been working on a project the last few days that I'm really excited about. I don't really know how to go about doing this but here is a start. A friend of mine started his own recording company in Florida. One of the first artists he recorded is a young man named Zachary Smith. He is amazing! He recorded a CD and my friend shared it with me. It is one of my favorite! He then gave me a whole box of his CD's with the opportunity to sell them at $15 a piece. $10 would go back to him and the rest was mine. He knew I was financially hurting and this was his way to help me out. I honestly can't think of making a profit from this but what I would like to do is donate my share to a charity that I learned about at my church. A lady was on vacation in India and came upon this small, very poor village. A couple of sisters had started an orphanage for girls but it was not much. Simply a safe haven from what the girls had come from. She wanted to make a difference and started on a mission to help these people. I was truly touched by what she has done and would like to help in some way. Anything I make from the sale of these CD's will go to this organization. You can visit their site here - Home of Hope. I am going to contact someone at my church and see if I can sell them there also. Here is a video I made to go with one song from the CD. For an additional donation I will also include a copy of this video. I hope you enjoy it and please feel free to share this site with your friends. Thanks and God bless!

This guy has an amazing voice!!! God bless him and God bless you too!

I've never heard anyone say ASHfalt. Funny! I've heard a lot of good, old country talking here in Arkansas though, so I've heard lots of funny words and pronunciations.
I love various accents, but I know how some things can drive a person nuts!
