You probably know that February is Black History Month. Did you know that it's also Library Lovers' Month? In acknowledgment of both of these things, my February dollars are going to my local public library and to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. If you have the notion, think about where these to month-long observations would lead you to give your time or money or resources, then proceed accordingly. If you are anything like me, you'll be glad you did.
Edited on 2/2/07: Mark and his mom went to visit the Austin Zoo yesterday, and on his request, I am adding them to this month's giving. Like some other zoos (and unlike others), the Austin Zoo is based on providing a safe and happy home for animals rescued from abusive and inappropriate situations, including private ownership and circuses. It's as much sanctuary as zoo. I can definitely support that.
