Shout Out To UGM Chirstmas Dinner Donors

I want to send a shout out to all the readers who open their hearts and wallet for the Union Gospel Mission 68th annual Christmas Dinner drive. Thanks to you, we’ve raised another $700 to add to the $5,000 already donated. A thank you goes out to the following.

Israel Lagares, Simon Gould, Steve Olson, Deanna, Ryan Burglehaus, Nick Throlson, Jeff Kinsey, Richard Delgado, Steve McGrath, Bruce Nunnally, Colin Klinkert, Kiki Kukiki, Reaper TV, Simon Chen, Faryl Zaklin, Ken Watanabe, Andrew Miller, Gary Ng, Tanya, Kevin Gillett, Lazy Man, Melissa Miller

Donations are still being accepted\ and I will continue to do shout out in both blog post and Dot Com Pho to any readers who help to support this drive. Tomorrow is US Thanksgiving. What better way to give thanks than by proving a hot meal to someone living on the street? Your donation could be the start of a new life and new beginning for someone in need.

      Indeed a noble thing John is doing – and you always have to give to recieve!! One of the articles I’m going to be writing on the topic of “no one owes you anything” will certainly cover this idea in some way shape or form – hope some of you guys will be able to check it out – my current article of “looking at the big picture” is already a huge hit in my small but growing community 🙂

    It really warms my heart seeing the generosity of the readers here at It really is comforting to know that amongst all the terrible and awful things that happen in our world, there are still those dedicated to bettering the lives of others.

    Keep up the damn good work.

  7. Dang, I have still yet to donate to your charity events, John 🙁 Every single time this is done, I don’t have money in Paypal 🙁 Since I still have to pay out tons of debt, it’s hard for me to put in money with credit card 🙁
