I was reminded by my dear wife this evening that there are other things going on that are more important than sports and cards. Specifically, the Haitian earthquake.
I'd like to challenge and encourage my readers to make a donation to the relief effort that is going on. Take whatever money you were going to spend on cards this week or this month and give. Put off your cards and give. Buy the cards and match what you spent.
Bud Selig has announced that MLB will be donating $1,000,000 to assist UNICEF's work. The NHL has added $100,000. The NBA is also supporting UNICEF. The NFL is organizing donations to the Red Cross.
If you are inclined to help, I'll make it easy and provide some links.
Remember, cards are an ephemeral pleasure. Your assistance can last a lifetime. Thanks.
