My friend (from TFAS Days in DC) Zach will be "in jail" this Thursday for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. I made a donation to bail him out. You can too at https://www.joinmda.org/2009stjosephlu/zachramsay.
My co-worker's daughter is running a race Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure. You can donate too at Julie's Page.
The New York Public Library is getting a bit of buzz on the blogosphere, and as a patron I'm on their mailing list for the Dream Raffle 2009. (There was also a call to e-mail your city council person from the Library, which I did a while back, but now I'm wondering if I should keep doing it/bombardment!) I pay a CRAP load of taxes to this city, and I'd really like them to apply some/a lot of it to the services I use, like the library. I know that's not a realistic way of looking at things, but anyway. Anyway, on the raffle, no purchase necessary, but still nice to make a donation. Maybe I'll win something.
What are your favorite charities?
