So I see that a few holiday card posts have gone up, now, and it's time to repeat what I ask of my friends every year; Please do not send me a card, because I have reasons to not like the practice.
You may, if you want to make the gesture, donate to a charity of your choice with the card and postage money you were thinking of spending on me. If you need suggestions, one of the following would be my preference:Great Ormond Street Hospital
- the children's hospital in London that saved my nephew's life.Project 826 NYC
- creative writing skills development for children in New YorkMedicins sans Frontiers
- healthcare and emergency aid to people affected by war, man made and natural disasters.
As I will not be sending out cards this year, I also ask people to let me know their preference for a charitable donation:
