    That both awesome and disappointing at the same time. I'm always skeptical about charities and other organizations based in 3rd world countries as bothfraud and misrepresentation seem to rear its ugly head whenever cash donations are involved. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks, everyone, for your patience and understanding regarding Room to Read. I'll be sure to post an update here once we receive news from them. In themeantime, I'm excited about our next donation - a very timely one - that I hope to announce before the end of the month.

    We are well on pace to break the $100,000 mark in total donations prior to the community's tenth anniversary in December. Obviously we're stillironing out some issues with our ads, but it is always our goal to ensure that each of you has the best experience possible while browsing our site. Westarted out solely to serve our fellow sneaker fans and you're obviously at the heart of everything we do. Thanks so much to everyone who's stuck withus and refused to enable ad blocking software. You're the ones who make these donations possible.

    When you think about the difference that this library will make in the lives of hundreds of young people, the difference it makes in your life to contribute toour ad revenues, and, thus, our donations is, I believe, well worth it. Ad values are down industry-wide, so we all have to pull together if we want tomaintain our current level of giving. Of course, as many of you already know, we've also been raising money with our apparel products, www.niketalk.com/store, so please check that out as well. I know some people are tiredof us plugging it, but we're just trying to do the best we can to raise money for charity in tough economic times.

    Please, like you didn't see it coming a mile away.

    It'll be New Jersey's legacy to the NBA. #1 in the record books.
