I feel like I need to speak up here and say that, against all odds (because I honestly had absolutely NO INTENTION of redacting my donation), I have, in fact, been issued a refund. This is based on first hand information given to me by Jennifer herself which led me to believe this to be the best course of action for me. The kids and I usually make Christmas boxes for women in the local homeless shelters, but this year I gave to the campaign instead, happily. Now, however, we will go back to our usual box-making. I feel good about this, because unlike the campaign, this is something we can do together as a family that isn’t focused on receiving, but on giving. I couldn’t afford to do both, but I was good with the change this one time, for Jennifer.

I still think that albert l gerber is a rock-solid rockstar and I feel Jennifer will be helped by his generosity. But I had to make a decision based on some actions taken that I don’t feel comfortable supporting.

I just thought it was important for me to be up front about this unexpected change in my plans.


I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
