BENEFITING: Growing Home, Inc.

EVENT DATE: Apr 02, 2016

Michael Morowitz

THE STORY:

After over two decades of training, I'm sending myself to the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament in Stamford, CT (April 1-3, 2016).

It'll be my rookie year competing against the best of the best puzzle solvers in the world. Now that I can cut through about a dozen puzzles a week with relative ease, I think it's time to put my skills to the test.

To mark this event, I've decided to dedicate my effort to an important charity and cause: Growing Home. Chicago-based Growing Home provides meaningful career training for people with employment barriers. They're an important force in building communities and re-building lives in Chicago.

You can read more about the organization and impact here: http://growinghomeinc.org/about-us/

Any donation will help make a difference in someone's life (and embolden me to strain my brain just a bit more). If I'm fortunate enough to place high enough to win a prize, it'll go directly towards Growing Home as well. Thank you!
