    I checked out the Sip to Support a Garden program, and it’s about supporting school PTAs, or seems to be. That said, this is just so exciting . . . thinking about all the groups that have supported us in some way: Citizens Committee of New York City, Build it Green-NYC, the gardeners who donated the soil, Greenwood Cemetery with the free leaf mulch and wood chip mulch, and now Jamba Juice. And that doesn’t count those that supported by way of raffle prizes in some of our early fundraising: Tazza, Concord Market, Celeste Diner, Swing Salon . . . . thinking about ways to recognize our supporters . . .

      There’s also a Sip to Support a garden program–I’ll get the scoop.
      http://www.jambajuice.com/gardens
      We could start by getting logos and putting them on an “Our Supporters” section of the site…But what we can realistically do depends on our manpower. Do you think we’ll get to man a table at the CV annual meeting next month? If so, we could have some literature/ handouts listing our supporters

    As a jungle he is one of my favorite pick due to his bandage toss ability where you close the distance between you and enemy champions.

    If you have any questions, use the League of Legends forums.
    If you find yourself getting nuked down by burst AP champions, get
    Maw of Malmortious.
