    Agreed Onder! Apparently not all people with money to spare have hardened their hearts. I do believe this is the time to make my own pitiful contribution and thank this person for making it less so.

    That is fantastic. I am applauding as well and will mail my own contribution.

    I’m already make a monthly contribution to the Ballard Food Bank and will mail my March and April donations to the address above so they get matched. I also applaud and will make an extra donation in addition. It’s nice that my little $30 a month can go a little further.
