but the children love the books

Some of you may know that I volunteer with a group called Oak Tree Corner, a place for children and teens to go to when someone close to them has died. I've written about it here and here. And probably other places, too, only I can't find those other places. Anyway.

Oak Tree's big yearly fundraiser is on April 24. We are funded solely on charitable contributions from friends, family, and the community. So, if you think this sounds like a good cause or you have an extra $5 laying around, would you consider donating? Pretty please? If you donate, I'll write a post about whatever you want. Or I'll send you candy, which is probably more of an enticement than me babbling about killer zombie monkeys from space or whatever. Again, I say ANYWAY.

THIS is where you can make donations and become my best friend.


  1. I feel like a big dummy asking this cause it seems so straightforward, but do you guys still need boxes of markers, crayons etc. etc.? My mom's an art teacher and the amount of supplies that woman has gathered over 25+ years of teaching is amazing. I'm sure she'd totally be willing to gather some stuff together and ship it out to Ohio.

  2. S, that would be great! We go through markers and art supply type stuff like crazy.

    PS: You're not a big dummy :-)

  3. I've been MIA from the internet for the last week, but I will see what I can get together!
