Happy B-Day, Dubya!

(Keywords & tags: , , to give to in 's name)

Happy birthday, George! In honor of your birthday, I'm suggesting that people donate to these causes in your name. Here's hoping you get a lot of thank you notes from these organizations - give to the nationals or the local chapters (where applicable):

Planned Parenthood
Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD)
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
Southern Poverty Law Center
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)
Freedom From Religion Foundation
Veterans for Peace
World Wildlife Fund
Gold Star Families for Peace (Cindy Sheehan's Organization)
NARAL Pro-Choice America
Parents, Families and Friend of Lesbians and Gays (PLAG)
National Organization of Women (NOW)
Greenpeace International
Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR)
Black Box Voting (Protect your right to vote)
Natural Resources Defense Council
Emily's List (Help elect pro-choice women)
Americans United for Separation of Church and State
People For the American Way (PFAW)
Reporters Without Borders

If you've got an organization that deserves to send a thank you card to Dubya, go ahead and leave the link as a comment. Remember to make all gifts in George W. Bush's name and, if you come across this post on any day other than July 6, do it anyway - better late than never. The address for thank you cards is The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500. I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

(Thanks to Elayne Boosler for the idea.)

I knew I'd forget at least one good one. Amnesty international.

Thanks to GW & Co. all the groups listed will be needed for some time to ameliorate the regressive effect of that bunch. Lets hope in two years jr can go back to living off of Poppy & Momsy...I believe the country has had enough.

I am proud to say I am an existing on going member of several of the groups listed, some I need to re-up, but great Orgs. all.
