From last night's news conference: We are asking every child in America to earn or give a dollar that will be used to provide food and medical help for the children of Afghanistan. You can send your dollar in an envelope marked "America's Fund for Afghan Children" right here to the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.*I don't have any children, and am (technically) not a child. Both DH and i have already donated to the Red Cross (money and blood). However, i love this idea! I'm going to tell my seven nieces and nephews plus my five cousins (all under age 12) that i will match their contributions to this foundation. (If the total goes over $25, my company will match my contribution!) I'm considering doing this for other nearby kids, too, like my boss' son and the neighbors' kids. Even if my relatives shrug their shoulders and don't send anything in, which i hope doesn't happen, i think we're going to send in a $1-per-kid donation in their names. hollisvloving kids of all nationalities are great*BTW, here's the link to the entire speech: http://www.cnn.com/2001/US/10/11/gen.bush.transcript/http://www.cnn.com/2001/US/10/11/gen.bush.transcript/
