One Small Step For Man

Tonight we took a small but important step toward our goal of establishing a charitable organization in Harper's memory - we applied for incorporation as a non-profit organization in the State of Indiana.

After a few hours with the initial Board (myself, Melissa and David Elster), my generous brother Neil was able to help us navigate the writing of our by-laws.  I think it's safe to say that without Neil's guidance, we would still be swimming in a sea of uncertainty.  A BIG Harper Hug to Neil for his help so far (and in the future I'm sure).

After that, it was 5 minutes online and $26 charged to my credit card (a Harper Hug to Jen and Dean Heckel for contributing to cover the filing fee), and our application for incorporation has been filed with the State.  There are more things to come, but we feel happy that we are formally on our way.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far.  We are hopeful that many of you will continue to support us in this new and exciting endeavor.

It was one small step for man, but one giant leap for kids and families affected by childhood cancer.
