Happy belated christmas. Sorry I'm a bit late about the 12 days of Christmas charity- thank you so much for including me, it's an honour as always! I wanted to give 300$ to a charity for street dogs I work for- they rescue dogs from the streets and out of pounds in Spain and make sure they're adopted. At the moment I have a foster dog here who'd probably be dead if not for them. Their website, www.denia-dogs.de
I'd like to give the rest of the money to charities that help refugees, since there are so many of them here in Germany and I'd like to give the 700$ to the local support system in my town, since it seems to be doing a pretty good job as far as I can tell. You can either donate on the website ( https://fluechtlinge-willkommen-in-duesseldorf.de/de/geldspenden#Clownschools-for-Life-e-V-) or send them the money via bank. Thank you for doing this, and much love from overseas!
500 to Planned Parenthood which needs a great deal of support right now.
250 to From The Top, which supports young musicians.
250 to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, which Austin and I frequented often.
Laura and Isobel
We know this is the last twelve minutes of Christmas, but we want you to know that we have been thinking about charities in Austin's honor.
Isobel and I have been talking a lot about all the problems that face the world and about how best to counteract them. In that spirit, she has chosen the following four charities:
Partners in Health: $250
Innocence Project $250
American Refugee Committee $250
National Resources Defense Council $250
