Guest Blog: "Birthday for Charity"

by Boris Yakubchik

For the second year in a row I chose to have a "Birthday for Charity" where I urge my friends to refrain from giving me presents other than donations which I would match (up to a point) and donate to a specified charity. In 2009 I made a website to encourage others to do the same - pledge publicly some amount of money. Here is the result: ($415 donated)
This year the website is fully interactive - anyone is able to register and host their own Birthday for Charity. While charitable contributions from my friends this year are lower than last year - I hope others will be inspired to have their own Birthday for Charity ($230 donated)
