'15 R, '05 Taco,
Still working on the Ukraine part, but soon. You guys were the first to get the link.

Our non-profit is extremely unusual in that 100% of all donations (individual and governmental) go towards the projects - we cover all the overhead and fundraising costs ourselves - and we've done multi-million $$ projects
Man that’s awesome. Doing good feels good. Post a link whenever, I’m happy to give.

Here is our latest big completed project - the article is a bit biased as the goal of the project was to reinvigorate the town - and we succeeded in that. the company that did the restoration did it at cost, the techs lived in the nearby church and hired local labor. No, I'm not Adam.

'15 R, '05 Taco,
160-300k draftees get 1mo of training and sent to go toe to toe with well trained battle hardened troops defending their homeland?
Yesterday I had heard reports of 2 weeks of training, but trying to get combat vets and prior military, which is still a crazy timeframe. Man I hope that Putin is bluffing about nukes.

I think Putin's support is eroding and I'm not sure the order to preemptively use nuclear weapons would be followed.
