Since 1989, I've travelled nearly 5,000 miles in my wheelchair raising money for children's organizations on this event I call the "Tenderness Tour," a grassroots effort to create a more peaceful community for every child. I focus on the areas of violence prevention, child abuse, domestic violence and sexual violence. I discovered Crowdrise a few years back but, sadly, obviously haven't discovered it well enough since I never realized this profile page existed.
I'm a paraplegic/double amputee with spina bifida. I'm about 25 years past my life expectancy and I'm trying to use the bonus years wisely. My goal every year is to give away more money than I make - most years, I succeed. I'm the author of "The Hallelujah Life" and another book I'm trying desperately to get ready for publication.
I run a film website, work for the State of Indiana as a full-time paid gig, am a reasonably well known activist and am also an ordained minister. I'm the founder of Indy's Race Away From Domestic Violence.
