Yes, we DO want something this Christmas

Dear Everybody Who Buys Stuff For Us:

We know we’re hard to buy for. We know we don’t help you much with this. We’re not into “stuff”, and we have everything we need.

One thing we do love is our city, Portland, Oregon. We’re committed to making it a better place, and support local charities that help people who aren’t as fortunate as we are. This Christmas, we’d like to be a little selfish and ask you to support our local charities, too.

See, I haven’t always been where I am today. I grew up on government cheese and second-hand clothes. I’ve accepted the holiday turkey from the food bank with gratitude. I’ve hoarded canned food during good times, to get through the lean times. But here I am, happily married, a home of my own, living in plenty. I made it, and others can, too. They just need a little help. How ’bout it?

If you’re on board, please check out our givelist at What Goes Around.org. It’s an easy way to give to one of our three favorite charitable organizations, Sisters of the Road Cafe, Central City Concern, and the Oregon Food Bank.

Thanks, and have a wonderful holiday.

Cat and Bill
