The holiday season

This is typically the time of year that most/some/a few of us think back over the last 300+ days and reflect on how cruddy/great/boring they were. I'm not going to bore anyone with my own musings, other than to say that I think I'm in a much better position than a lot of people, and for that I should be thankful -- and I am. Therefore, I'm going to shameless plug a favorite charity of mine, in the hopes that if you're looking to spread some holiday cheer, you might consider them.

CFCA the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging. Why? This reason, if for no other.
CFCA assigns the highest reasonable amount of available resources to the direct benefit of sponsored members. In 2008, CFCA’s total contributions and revenues exceeded $103.9 million, a record level. A total of $93.6 million was disbursed in direct assistance to our projects for the benefit of the children, youth and aging persons we serve.
That's a pretty good return on your dollar. I receive several letters a year from Alex, the child I've been sponsoring, and I've gotten to see him grow up and thrive thanks to this foundation.

Thanks for the tip, I'll probably throw some bones their way. And thanks to numbnuts above you probably need to start putting some security on the comment posts now.
