On the right PATH

I’m back from Istanbul! I have plenty of thoughts and updates, but they will have to wait for a more felicitous time. Until then, I thought I’d let you know that after a previous posting I made about PATH, my charity of choice, I’ve formed a deeper relationship with the organization, which leaves me increasingly impressed.

As part of this relationship, PATH has added me to their donor profile, a part of their welcome series to new donors.

I sincerely believe in the goal that PATH is trying to accomplish, but they are not alone in their goals. What sets them apart, to me, is the pragmatic and sensible way they identify and execute projects. That seems like a small thing, but it is the thing that takes good intentions and turns them into good outcomes, instead of just a waste of money.

I would encourage you to take a look at their mission and their work, and consider them as an option for your charitable contributions. And hey, now you know what to get me for my birthday!

    1. Catherine, the blog doesn’t have a subscription list, per se. There are a few ways that people subscribe to a blog like this. Probably the easiest would be to add it to your bookmarks and/or favorites and check it regularly. Some people have a list of bookmarks they check every day. Other people have “Reading lists”. Google has a Reader tool (https://www.google.com/reader) that is quite good. The address you would put into that would be https://mytruantpen.com/feed/ . There are also tons and tons of third party tools that can have your “reading lists”.

      I do hope that you will continue to read, however! I should probably warn you that my posts are about 70% cute kid, 20% actual thoughts and less than 10% PATH-oriented. 🙂
