For sure, we want to give $250 to OPB/PBS. They put so much quality broadcasting out there, I don't know what our society would do without them. Of course we love Downton Abbey and similar classics, but find their programs on nature, ancestry, American history, science, and critical issues like climate change increasingly important.
Also send $250 to the Goodplanet Foundation.
Thank you for again inviting me to be a part of this; it's a wonderful project, and I'm touched to be able to contribute.
After giving it some thought, I would like to direct $500 towards the Alzheimer's Association and $500 towards the American Chemical Society's Project SEED. Both charities, scientific humanitarian efforts, embody a deep curiosity and passion for chemistry and chemical biology that I think embody Austin well.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family now and always,
Thank you for once again letting me participate in Austin's 12 Days of Christmas. This means so much to me and though it's difficult, I'm honored to be a part of it.
I've chosen two charities to split the donation.
First, I'd like to give $500 to the Wikimedia Foundation. I feel that the spirit of the Wikimedia Foundation is to make knowledge accessible to everyone. I think Austin embodies this same spirit with his love of learning and sharing knowledge.
The second charity is Earthplace Nature Center in Connecticut. This one is more local for me and does a lot of good conservation work and provides outdoor education for children. I picked this because of Austin's love for nature and spreads his passion for science to a new generation of scholar.
