and I haven't been able to convince anybody that I know in real life that they should give up their birthday gifts. However, thanks to the wonders of the blogging community, I can link you to someone who has. If you never got around to giving Scott Harrison a present, rejoice! Be glad you waited, because now you can give one to Ted, instead, and he seems like a much nicer guy. Click on Ted's name to donate, and as a bonus you'll get to see a v. cute pic of Ted and Lori's Ethiopian baby, Abenezer, on the donation site.
Another great thing, the donations are being matched dollar-for-dollar by generous corporations (or corporations who want good PR and some tax deductions - frankly I doubt we care, so long as they hand over the money). So click now!
