  3. Added Greater Lansing Food Bank to our Shopper software!
  4. Interviewed Voiceless-MI.


Failure is okay if you learn from it. Here’s what we learned recently:

  • Creating a website for all screen sizes is 10% coding, 40% troubleshooting, and 50% testing.
  • Being anxious doesn’t get more work done. Usually, the opposite is true.


Thanks to Heather Vida of Hospice of Lansing for the invitation to the recent AFP Capital Area presentation. Thanks to Paul Schmidt of UnoDeuce Multimedia for including us in the Giving Tuesday Video Giveaway.

Thank you to all our new friends!
