Alec Robinovitz started a small effort to donate books to his local children's hospital a few years back. As he waited to find out about his sick sister, he found he had nothing to do in the waiting room. So he got some books and gave him to the hospital. This effort has grown into nearly 10,000 books being donated to the cause, from friends, family, strangers and authors.
I have endorsed my charity of choice and before this holiday season is out, I will do so again. And again. Why? Because. That's why. There need be no reason. As we move into the holidays, the best of us can lose that "holiday spirit" crap that Hollywood and special episodes lead us to believe is out there. So do not think about that. Donate something to a cause that makes this crapshack world a little better, even if it is a little time for your fellow man. Hell, just put on a smile and hold the door open for someone. Don't cost nothing.
