Good message. I know Richard enjoys eating too. That link with cat food
scared me a little, but I bet he has never eaten cat food. He likes drinking
too, and he can use some cards for that.

Hi Richard,
If I can get onboard you can too.
I am sure with all of the things out there you should be able to find
something you use and then buy it.
I have to get something for Pet Smart because Kiana the Cat has a Special
Cat Food.
I usually buy two bags of Cat Food when I get it.
I know you enjoy eating so you should be able to find something you can use.
I think there are even Cards you can get for some stores.
I think there are some Cards you 
can use for some Coffee Chains such as Starbucks.
This is such an easy way to donate to the NFB of Ohio.
I really appreciate the work that is renuired of those who manage the
program including the help they give to those of us who do not place orders
