Default Shameless Promotion Of A Web Site

Hi all,

I've recently launched a new website for friends at http://www.billymockfoundation.org This family has been such an inspiration to so many people! The husband was sent to Iraq where he served for over a year and was decorated for his service. Just months after returning to the United States his son started suffering from headaches, leading to a 15-month battle with brain cancer. Billy died a year ago at the age of 13. During the time that Billy was gravely ill, his father was let go by his employer because he was spending too much time with his son! Though they have suffered through more pain then we can imagine, they made the decision to not let grief swallow them up and started a foundation in Billy's name to assist other family's via finances, scholarships & an incredible "pay it forward" program. Their motto is "simply helping others".

What I'm HOPING is this fine group of people will visit their site and leave a word of encouragement in their guest book. I'm hoping to fill it up to help give them a boost of courage as they move forward. Something like "go, go, go!!" would be great

The site looks great! I would see if you can get it listed in a few websites that list organizations like guidestar.org.

Thanks for the site recommendation! Just getting to the point of promoting. I still want to add some pictures of their last run and they also have a golf tournament coming up. They are a very humble family and it is still hard for them to even review the site because their hearts are so raw and they keep seeing Billy's pictures... what a beautiful child. I have a son the same age, so I can't even work on the site without crying! I'll be doing what I can on my end, so I appreciate the tip.
