I decided to spend some of the piggy bank for two good causes. As I posted earlier, five bucks went to MyBednet.com’s campaign to get as many people as possible to contribute just one bednet in the fight against malaria. And I wanted to help sponsor blogger Proper of the Day for the New York City AIDS Walk. Even with these two small outlays, I’m on track for a nice donation or two by the end of the year. I’ll continue to post an update each month and keep a running total on the blog’s upper right column.
Today’s mitzvah: Consider creating a “charity piggy bank” to collect small sums for a year-end charitable contribution.
