1. If you have a couple of bucks burning a hole in your pocket, donate. They're a new thriving ambitious company and they could certainly use the support. If you're in the Bay Area, it's a great way to support a new company and get involved. If you're not, hey... it's Russ and Katie. We love Russ and Katie. And their daughter Zoe. And, of course, Dakota their Dog. Why not donate?
2. If you live in the area, Russ will be acting in the ART. Go see it!
