I thought I already wrote a post about this, but I can't find it, so perhaps it was in my head. Anyway, aside from the 12 New Year's resolutions I posted the other day, I also have one more. This one was actually made way back in September, after Katrina hit, but it's one I plan to keep for 2006.
I resolved at that time to give a set amount of money each month to charity. After giving it some thought, I decided that the way I'd do this was to pick one or two or three charities each month and give to those. In order to spread the word, I started posting buttons to link to the charities I'd chosen over there -->, changing them when I gave to something new (ideally each month, but the Katrina Relief Fund was up for several months, for obvious reasons). So that's what those are there for. Thanks to the reader who asked!
This month's highlighted organizations are the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and the National Women's Law Center. Both are great organizations and I encourage you to check them out.
