This is specifically for my livejournal friends, in lieu of a Christmas card. I've bought 200 school dinners for African children through oxfam unwrapped christmas donation service. Because I friend about 200 people on livejournal. Including people who comment here, people who friended me long ago and probably don't read my posts any more, and people who haven't even friended this blog, but whom I enjoy reading.
As any teacher will tell you, it’s easier to feed hungry minds if you’ve fed hungry mouths first. As well as providing nourishment, meals encourage children to attend school and help them to concentrate and learn better. This donation will buy a dinner for 200 children. Now that's food for thought.
And I hope that makes you feel as nice as getting a card off me, because realistically I'm not going to manage it this year. But I do appreciate you in my own way.
