How you can help CAAO

Hello Norm,

CAAO's plan is to get folks to donate $10.00 and find 10 others to donate $10.00.  If CAAO wins the competition we will use the prize money for CAAO's Youth Innovation Forum (YIF) - think tank for urban youth to generate ideas for new products, fresh designs and creations with the goal of selling its services to market research organizations.
