Platitudes of Gratitude

Heading toward Thanksgiving and the Giving Season, I can't help being cliché and listing some of the things for which I'm grateful:

  • Kids who agree it makes sense to go out for ice cream on the way back from trick-or-treating.
  • Parents who aren't exactly at 100% health, but who are still kicking and showing me how to squeeze the most out of life.
  • Far-flung friends who treat me like family and entice me to travel a lot.
  • A partner who gets me.
  • A squad of generous do-gooders on the Internet who bring me a sense of purpose.

Thank you all! ❤️

October 2021 winner Pea Island Preservation Society

At midnight on Halloween 🎃 we named Charitocracy OBX's 13th monthly winner! Congratulations to Pea Island Preservation Society, nominated by donor boldpath. They preserve the history of The Pea Island Life Saving Station and African American keeper Richard Etheridge. You can find their website here.

Now you have a week to sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to PIPS. In fact, we already had three generous pot sweeteners come in!

So finally take a moment to watch this video highlighting Pea Island Preservation Society's Juneteenth Celebration this year at the Cookhouse Museum in Manteo. (My son and I were lucky enough to attend ourselves!) Then feel good about your part in our collective $567+ grant to help with their ongoing work!

Have a great November and be sure to log into Charitocracy OBX to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
