Facebook Birthdays

Today’s my birthday, and everyone knows it thanks to Facebook. But I’m OK with that because I have come to look forward to the birthday greetings once a year, particularly after my dad’s death. It’s been nice to know friends are nearby, sending kind notes and messages.

The Causes app is also great – I forgot to use it this year because I’ve been so preoccupied with everything else – I was hoping to ask people to contribute where my dad had asked for donations upon his death, the Children’s TLC (Therapeutic Learning Center) in Kansas City. So here’s my request, if anyone still wants to do so. Just send $10 online and they will appreciate it greatly. Donate here.

Thanks to all who have helped in many different ways online and off over the past month and a half. Thanks to you, hopefully this will be more of a happy than sad b-day.
