All Trousers…

In Britain we have a saying that encapsulates the characteristics of someone who talks a great deal but doesn’t back up their speech with action. We say that they are “All mouth and no trousers”…The groups and individuals below have not only said that they were going to offer support, advice and donations to the pilot groups, they actually came through with the goods.

I extend my thanks to them and hope that giving them a shout out on this blog lets other people know how much their contributions are appreciated.
