We know those guys

We're in the thick of sending out donation checks and acknowledgments from our Buck-a-Hit Day charity fundraiser when we come across this article about one of our seven benefited charities. A nice story -- let's hope that success doesn't go to their heads.

Speaking of charities, our buddies at Willy Week still have their fund drive going. If you missed our Buck-a-Hit Day, which they kindly pointed their readers to, maybe you could head on over there and drop a buck in their bucket.

Thanks for your nice shout out for Willamette Week's Give!Guide. With your help, it just blew by the $500,000 level. Congratulations on your own Buck A Hit day. I'll be making a contribution in your name.

Thanks Jack. You're a gent. So are you Richard. Congrats to both of you on a successful drive to push money towards organizations doing good work in our city, state and country.

Instead of giving crap made from China, as most do/have done in years past, I made a donation in honor of every family member to my favorite charities. I included an invoice of the donation and a hand written card. Let me tell you, I feel so much better about where my money is going. They may not be as excited about it but a gift is a gift.

BTW, I picked Oregon Wild, In Defense of Animals, Oregon Food Bank, and ACLU as the recipients.
