These child support organizations do such important work. I make a regular donation to the UK equivalent every month; it comes out of my bank account, no paperwork, and I don't have to remember to write a check or anything.

Here's something concrete to think about. I was talking to friends at the NSPCC (National Association for the Prev. of Cruelty to Children) the other day and they told me that MANY calls to their hotline fail for one reason or another. For example, a kid might call and he gets a busy signal; already freaked out, he never calls again. Or he calls and gets into a queuing system; he panics after a few minutes and hangs up and never calls again.

All for lack of sufficient volunteers and funding for improvements to infrastructure.

Much love,
Larry
