It's Not Much But It Makes Me Feel Better.... [Humanitarian contributions; Personal; Very Short]


Come tomorrow I may spend a grand.
Sitting, writing checks, I'll make my "stand"....

and loss of Nature.
I lend a hand.

i don't give a thousand dollars at one time, but over a year i gladly give more than that much to several non-profit and sometimes not-non-profit organizations which i hope make the world a better place for Mankind and Nature.
