Globe Santa Update
It took a while, but I finally got all of my "invitations" out to Globe Santa. I invited people on Facebook, LinkedIn, and via email. It's hard to do mass invites on these things as they all have various mechanisms to avoid spam. It's understandable, but it made it more work than I reckoned for.
So far, my Facebook Cause has 11 members and $275 donated. Another offline donor (thanks, Dad!) gave $25. So, $300 total, and we're just getting started.
There's some history of Globe Santa in today's Boston Globe. It's a simple idea -- provide toys for poor children who would otherwise get nothing during the holiday season. It spreads hope and good cheer. Most of us have so much that we can easily spare something for someone who has so little.
Happy holidays, and thanks for your support.
