Have also been contacted by a reporter for the Daily Telegraph, a British newspaper based in Washington, DC. She wants to come to one of our copy runs to do a story.

I'm very happy with all of our coverage. Stay tuned for more news, and thanks to all of you who chipped in as we couldn't have done it without you.
