Tom has chosen The Saint Vincent de Paul Society, and Maureen has chosen Catholic Charities, both worthy organizations.
Especially since I work at Saint Vincent de Paul Catholic Church. Durn the two of you for making me choose, and I might have done the Christian thing and given an equal donation to each charity and called it a draw except for this little piece of biting commentary I found on Tom's blog:
Now come on men, surely those among you who’ve climbed aboard the Express can outperform a bunch of Advent Wreath maker hangers-on.
If Tom is going to drag gender AND creativity into this little challenge, he has a fight on his hands. I will have to send my money to Catholic Charities.
Do what you can. Even if prayers are all you can afford right now.
