Share the Spirit! Help A Needy Family Make It Through Christmas.

Friends, these are difficult times. The worst of times for some. There is a family with good hearts looking forward to the holiday time ahead. But for them, the coming Christmas looks a little sparse.

They are neighbors, good people, who have fallen on hard times but haven't fallen down low enough (i.e. "lost everything") to qualify for free government relief and church-related hand-outs. They're on the edge of the abyss.

I'd like to raise anywhere from $300 to $500 - I know they'll appreciate whatever amount comes in. While it may not seem like much, it can help with holiday groceries and a few presents!

If you'd like to help, any amount you can give by clicking on the gold "Donate" button under the masthead to the right of Google Ads on the sidebar of this blog will be appreciated. (Right now, taht account is totally EMPTY - so every penny that goes in between now and noon New York time on Christmas Eve will be given to the needy family.) No amount is too small, but let's keep the minimum at USD $2, okay? THANK-YOU and Peaceful Blessings!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
