A Little Bit of Hope, and Food

Thank you all for coming by and commenting yesterday. As a result of the 44 comments I received on yesterday's Blog Action Day post, I put a check in the mail to the Food Bank for New York, in the amount of $44. (And yes, that includes $3 because Painted Maypole commented three times, and spare dollars for a couple of other multi-commenters!)

Extra thanks to Jennifer (ponderosa), who pledged to match my $44 with a gift of her own to Neighbor Impact (the feed-the-hungry program in her Oregon town).

And extra credit to Alejna and Ilina and Kyddryn for jumping in and making similar posts, and to Julie for Twittering about mine, and Catnip for Stumbling it.

Bit by bit, we can keep trying to make the world a better place. Bit by little bit.

Mwah! Of course, if I'd known I could comment more than once...

Wow, can't think where I was yesterday! Sorry I missed it. I'll contribute extra to the Oregon Food Bank in December when I send in the proceeds from the art sale at Camp Cactus

$3. I would like to think that I've done my part, but really, YOU'VE done my part. So thank YOU.

You are a cool woman. Wish I would have been present for it all but I suppose that doesn't stop me from doing my own thing, right?
