Single Handedly is a charitable organization which collects orphaned single mittens and gloves to give to amputees around the country.

- Movie presentation of High Ground
Eleven veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan join an expedition to climb the 20,000 foot Himalayan giant Mount Lobuche. With blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a team of Everest summiters as their guides, they set out on an emotional and gripping climb to reach the top in an attempt to heal the emotional and physical wounds of the longest war in U.S. history. Representing nearly every branch of the military, the veterans, and the Gold Star Mom who joins their trek, bring humor and deep emotion to this hero’s journey all captured with breathtaking, vertigo-inducing cinematography by three-time Emmy winner, director Michael Brown and produced by Don Hahn (The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast). HIGH GROUND has won three awards since its premiere at the Boulder International Film Festival, and recently screened at the Seattle International Film Festival.
