Thank You from the Mayor

Dear Miles,

I can't thank you enough for your commitment to the San Diego community and including me in today's press announcement. The DO Something volunteer campaign is an outstanding way to encourage people to "give back" and the City is grateful for the Rock's committing 100,000 volunteer hours. It was my pleasure to be part of the announcement. Also, many thanks for a copy of your book DO Something!. It will be a fine addition to my library.

Sincerely,
Jerry Sanders
Mayor
