Rick Wittrig's Olympic Third Rock Fire Pit in Whistler Olympic Village!

Third Rock fire pit has arrived and been installed at the Whistler Olympic Village. It did not really sink in how important the Vancouver Olympic Committee's choice of my art work was to me until I saw it there and I am a humbled by their choice. On the link select photo number 20.

For the last nine years a friends of mine Bob and Denise Snyder have been doing mission at Riviere Mancelle in Haiti. They are as close to God as any folks I have ever met and I know that every single penny of donations they recieve have been for the benefit of Haitians. At this time people are flooding out of the cities into the countryside seeking food and shelter and need our help. Bob has given me the opportunity to build rocket stoves (very efficient wood burning stoves) for three schools in that area and they will feed about 1200 kids daily, I greatly appreciate that he chose me to assist them in this way. We have also had the opportunity to sponsor a child for just $70.00 a year. This includes tuition, books and two uniforms and a lunch as long as their funding lasts. So here is the deal. If you want to help these folks and I know you do, there is not better person to intrust with your hard earned dollars. Administration costs are kept at less than one half of one percent. If you do not have funds now its OK these people needed help before this disaster and they will need it for a very long to come. Thanks to you all. Here is the link to The Haiti Project at Rivere Mancelle.

For all that want to keep up with our Haiti project, please go to
Please pray for all

Bob did not ask me to do this but would appreciate all you can do. If you want to contact him directly here is how:
