where the writers are
Helping my favorite charities. Here!

Who knew...?

Today I am procrastinating. Never mind what I ought to be doing. I came here. I poked around, and discovered that I can list up to five of my favorite charities, and they will receive publicity here on Red Room --on my page, I assume-- and also a donation from any earnings my page here makes.


Thank you, Red Room. I wish you'd told me earlier. 

My charities are:

The Detroit Institute of Opthalmology, especially the Eyes On Design fundraiser http://www.eyeson.org

The Capuchin Soup Kitchen, run by the Brothers in Mount Elliott, Detroit http://www.cskdetroit.org

Causes We Support

I'm sorry that the part of our mission that will forward money to the causes our community supports didn't get to you until now, Rowena. That shows we need to work harder to put that message out there. Thanks for the heads-up!

I hope I didn't come across as critical of you. I was delighted with the function, and it seemed to me that blogging was the best way to get the word out to my friends and do the maximum good in the minimum time.

Thanks to all your applications, I was able to syndicate my blog (and thereby promote myself and my two favorite charities I hope) to Facebook, Stumble Upon, Digg, and Twitter).

Ultra cool!

Squidoo allows our earnings to go to charity, too, but I don't THINK they give us a choice. I might be wrong.

You've added a lot of super stuff to this site since I first stopped by and set up my page. I think you were in Beta then. It could be that I missed some features because they weren't included when I joined.

Kudos to you!

I think Rowena's true skill is that she weaves this intricate world of aliens and sex just the same way J.K. Rowling weaves the world of Wizards.~Des DiFabio, http://book-club-queen.com
