Friends, the year is closing--it's dark in the northern hemisphere, but all kinds of light is breaking through. And Third Act is casting some of that light: in two years we've become a nationwide force.  If you've got a little bit left to give before 2023 comes to an end, we will put it to use--we are a lean operation that under-promises and over-delivers, and we aim to keep it that way. You're all helping in many ways; this is just one more.

See you on the other side!
