What I like Most About VIN
  • VIN is a grand idea Ö almost too grand to imagine when it started. But there were some who truly believed in the power of the community to build the idea. Those first believers now know they were right, but I suspect they may never truly know how many have been positively impacted. There are many and I count myself among them. I feel very fortunate to have any small role in this grand idea.
