Some Want Gifts and Some Want to Give
She asked for checks for a charity for her birthday instead of gifts, and raised over $1000 for the Humane Society. Well done, Shira!
I suggested to my husband Clem that he ask for gifts for a charity for his 80th birthday in April, as I had done for my birthday a couple of years ago.
“We could say on the invitation that you want guests to make a contribution to a charity in your name or in your honor.”
To be fair, he didn’t receive birthday gifts as a child or even as an adult until he met me, so he’s still making up for lost time!
