But this time around there was a great sense of satisfaction that none of us had ever felt before. How often can we do something that is fun for the participants as well as help the unprivileged? How often does one get the opportunity to PlayToHelp? I was one of the first few ones to get there - our site for the PlayToHelp event on Saturday Dec 03, 2011.
