A Little Means a Lot

There are so many topics this time of year, and so little time. With just a few minutes to spare, this is the one I most want to share:

The Modest Needs Foundation.

It's an award-winning charity where donors can give just $10 or $20 to someone with a temporary need. You can choose the person you donate to - an out of work teacher who needs help with the rent, someone who can't afford a pair of glasses ... real people who just need a hand. (Requests are vetted by the organization.)

Check out the website at

Even a little goes a long way toward making life a lot better for ordinary people who aren't helped by traditional services, but who nevertheless deserve a break.

That there are teachers out of work when we all have so much to learn is a crime in itself that should be investigated, prosecuted and then corrected by the law that believes in humanity.
Happy Christmas to you and your family from across the pond.
