Recently I received two checks in the mail. Each for about $300. One was a refund for a medical procedure Michelle had done back in 2007. The  other was from a group of friends who wanted to buy something to honer her but the logistics just didn't pan out. As I was thinking about what to do with the money I decided I'd like to donate it to something that was uniquely important to Michelle. So as a start I've set up these two "Charity Badges" for adoption related agencies that really helped Michelle and I on our adoption journey. Since Michelle was adopted and we were able to adopt both girls I know this had special meaning for her. This past month my great friends in our poker group raised $170 to go towards these charities. Down the road I might add others but this seemed like a good place to start.  I thought I would share in case anyone else had an urge to donate in her memory.
