This is a drastic departure from my normal technical blog posts, but something I really want to share. My Brother-In-Law has put together a bike ride across Haiti later this month to raise money for Children of the Promise. My company, Intelligink has the privilege to sponsor the ride by providing the entire cycling team with jerseys for the ride. Not only that, but it is something close to my heart as Children of the Promise used to be run by my Brother-In-Law and Sister and while they were serving in Haiti, my wife and I had the privilege of spending a week down there visiting and volunteering at COTP.

All of the costs of the trip are either being paid for by the riders themselves or through sponsorship’s, so 100% of your donation will go directly to COTP.

During this Christmas season when so often we find ourselves thinking about what we are going to get for Christmas, how about thinking about what you can give to others who are far less fortunate than ourselves. If you want to donate online to COTP you can visit Or, if you prefer to mail a physical check the addresses are:
