Do you have money lying around that you think might be better served by being given to charity?
Well, I encourage you to give some of it to the people I just spent a good chunk of the evening assisting with a fundraiser, Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
You can find out a lot more about the work they do from that website, but the short version is you can support a group that helps a lot of parents and kids be better able to cope with a devastating disease, and help fund the search for a cure.
And it’s tax-deductible! Who doesn’t love a good tax deduction? I know I do. Finally, I shall quote Avenue Q:
When you give to a worthy cause
You’ll feel as jolly as Santa Claus
When you help others,
you can’t help helping yourself.
Now give ’em some money.
