I returned home at midnight last night, just as our new Charitocracy winner was being selected. It's the first dark night I've seen for weeks. I've been adventure traveling with my son near the Arctic, spanning summer solstice, where at best the sky dims a bit for a couple hours. It's strange having to once again plan my time around something as pesky as when the sun will be out!
Now I look forward to settling down and enjoying some actual summer heat before hitting the road again with Jessica and the kids for 6 weeks in August. We'll be embarking on an epic family RV trip with a focus on national parks. But my Charitocracy laptop is no stranger to the nomadic lifestyle, so you can expect things to roll on without disruption. There just may be a day or two in there when we have no access to Internet. Charitocracy pretty much runs itself these days, anyway!
June 2019 winner: Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation
Last night we named Charitocracy's 34th monthly winner. Congratulations to Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation, nominated by donors
katnadam0616. They support and shape the direction of research into the cure, prevention, and management of cerebral palsy.
Now you have a week to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to CPARF next week.
Before you go, check out CPARF's video about how something as simple as a wheelchair can transform lives. Then feel good about your part in our collective $1530+ grant to help with their work!
Have a great July and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
