For the first time My Heart and I decided to donate to our local public radio station this year. We listen regularly (even more so now that 97.1 plays dumb music) and we really enjoy it so it was about time we decided to give. It wasn't much but every penny helps right?
We try to be as giving as we can with our money and our time (ok, not as much anymore but we will again!). I've joined a group on facebook called Once A Month Charity Club that nominates and votes on organizations we all want to donate $5 to for the month. A friend of mine came up with the idea and I just love it.
So, if I'm a patron of the arts, a supporter of non-profits, then why can't I show some love for one of the best blogs I read every day? There's been some controversy surronding Petunia Face and her addition of the Nacho button which takes you to a paypal page where she accepts donations. I just want to put it out there, I find nothing wrong with this. She writes an amazing blog EVERY DAY! Why not show her you support her efforts, hell... you applaud her efforts!? She's not asking you to, it's there if you want to and you can ignore it if you don't. I personally think her writing is an enjoyment that I don't want to go without so I'm willing to pay the price and to me that price is not free.
