A Small Simple Project To Help A Family In Need

People have donated bazillions of dollars in droves for all kinds of charities and disasters. I'm not looking for any amount near that much. I'm not out to save an entire neighborhood.

A golden opportunity!

I'm not planning to deliver hundreds of meals or buy and giveaway fifty turkeys or anything like that. I will simply help make the Holiday less of a burden for a needy family. I'm not saving them from being homeless or hungry. I'm just giving them a gentle lift. They're struggling, like all of us, and that "little lift" is all they need for a brighter day and a better start to a New Year.

If you can make a pledge in this modest quest, that would be great! Any amount, large or small! A dollar or two from YOU added to a dollar or two from the next person, is all it would take!

I already have pledgie account that was set up as an avenue to help support my blogging, but, as it was not needed, I never pressed it into service. Now is the time to use this resource!

If you can help, please do so by contributing using the donation box.

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.
