It's Buck-a-Hit Day III

Welcome to the third annual Buck-a-Hit Day on this blog. By visiting this site today, you have caused me to give $1 to a charity that feeds or shelters needy people here in Oregon. The Mrs. and I will give another $1 for every additional unique visit to the site before midnight tonight (as determined by SiteMeter), up to a maximum of $1,250. Last year, we reached 1,250 hits by 3:07 p.m. Once again, our charities are the Oregon Food Bank; the food pantry of St. Philip Neri Parish; and Daybreak Shelter for homeless families.

This year, for the first time, we're inviting you to join us in the holiday spirit. Just click the box below to make a contribution to our new favorite charity, the Oregon Chapter of the Children's Heart Foundation. We'll match every dollar donated today, up to $250:

If you'd like a receipt (contributions to the Children's Heart Foundation are tax-deductible for you deduction-itemizers out there), just leave a note with your donation, or email me here. Be sure to include in the note your name and address and the amount you've contributed.

Thanks for coming by today. If you are a newcomer, I hope that you will look around the site a bit (the archives are up on the main page sidebar, if you're interested), and come back again another day. And please don't hesitate to get out the word to others who may want to visit today. (One last thing: I'll be changing the time stamp on this post from time to time throughout the day to keep it up on top of the main page.)

That's really cool!!! TeacherRefPoet sent me today!

Is mine really the second comment?

Oh man, you got lucky. I was going to make you pony up a matching contribution, but when I went to Make a Donation, all I got was this lousy t-shirt:
"We are sorry, we are experiencing temporary difficulties. Please try again later. If this error occurred while making a payment, avoid duplicate payments by checking your Account Overview before resending a payment.

Maybe next time.

Pay Pal functionality appears to be restored at this time. Do it, folks!

I can verify that Pay Pal is working now. Thanks again for doing this!

Thank you for coming.

Ego + charitable impulse = good deed
