Timing is everything.
Last week, I posted my annual “Happy Anniversary to me” story (and request for donations — “06880” has become my pretty-much-full time job, and it’s completely reader-supported).
Turns out the story ran the morning Westport was hit by a big snow — with a power outage affecting thousands of homes.
So rather than reading “06880,” plenty of readers were (literally) in the dark. Or out shoveling.
So — on the advice of several readers who missed that story, and found out about it randomly — I’m adding a link to it: click here.
Thanks to all who donated already to support “06880.” You rock!
But if you haven’t, and want to skip the story linked above, here’s the quick and easy way:
You can donate by PayPal: click here. It’s easy, safe — and you don’t even need a PayPal account. If you get an error message, go to www.PayPal.com; then log in (or create an account), and send money from the dropdown menu by entering this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. (You can also click the “Donate” button on the home page of “06880.”)
I’m also on Venmo: @DanWoog06880. Thank you!
Checks can be mailed to: Dan Woog, 301 Post Road East, Westport, CT 06880. Put “06880” on the memo line. It won’t do anything for the IRS, but it may help you remember at tax time why you sent me something.
