I'd like to see what sort of support is out there for just giving me
money. So, please, if you have any extra cash around, feel free to donate
it to me. Its tax deductable, really. Ok, serious stuff below:
Would you be willing to make a small Cash donation that would

Possibly. It would really depend on what "small" is, and of course how
much money I've at the time. Obviously, can't donate to anything if my
own finances are (APU) rather thin.

Absolutely. This is to me, a million times more valuable than cash

Uhm... Robert... stop eating the green eggs and ham. That fuzzy stuff
isn't the pig's fur... Its mold, and thats surely not good for you.
However, I would be willing to eat green eggs and Ham if it could help a
good cause, like the protection of the purple people eate. (Resent
problems with the population of its main food item, purple mpeople, have
led to a decline.)
