"HUGS FOR HUMANITY" is a cross country journey on foot via The American Discovery Trail to promote Healthy, Peaceful, Simple living. ONE MILLION HUGS-ONE MILLION DOLLARS.  The proceeds that I am raising benefit Neurofibromatosis Inc.

Take a Hike... for NF!"

I am hiking/hugging across America on The American Discovery Trail to raise support and awareness for NF.  (DE to CA in 2008)

Besides donating on this page, here are other ways you can help us with Hugs for Humanity:              

1.  E-mail and talk to others.  Tell them about my hike, my web sites, and NF.  Word of mouth is amazing.  Even if you can't help directly, I guarantee you know someone that can! 

2.  If you or someone you know lives along our travel route, CONTACT me about setting up a Hug-a-Thon.  They are very simple and can be done at a church, a bar/restaurant, or in a public area!  We'd also appreciate any living room floor to crash on or shower/laundry facilities that we can use. 

4.  Join me for a day of hiking along the way or wave "hi".  I'd love to see you! 

5.  Hold a local fundraiser or ask people you know to donate in honor of my hike.  You can ask friends, family and co-workers to donate or you can set up a collection can on your desk at work.  I'll be on the trail for 8 months.  It'd be neat to see how much loose change can get collected over such a time period.
