Either that or the ubiquitous Christmas music I’ve been subjected to in the diasporah has seeped into my brain and turned me into a peace loving tree hugger. See, it’s like this. Harry sent me a text message about this bilingual, bicultural school in Israel attended by Arabs and Jews whose curriculum is based on peaceful coexistence. The school depends heavily on donations for it’s continued existence – that’s not a surprise. The twist is that there’s this “Giving Challenge” on Facebook with a daily $1000 prize for the cause with the most unique donors for that day. Just yesterday, a cause with 38 donors won the challenge Harry informs me. So since all the Christians will be doing their Christmas thing tomorrow, if we mobilize and make modest donations, maybe this school can win the cashola. I was so moved by the combination of a good cause and a good scam that I will make a modest donation tomorrow. Read all about the Gesher Al Hawadi school on Harry’s new recently redesigned blog – The View From Here 3.0. Or enjoy our witty repartee below:

harry: Just need to change the colors!
Any chance of promoting this campaign on Jewlicious?
ck: if it comes from Harry…

harry: Im getting some photos shortly.
Thanks dude.
ck: just cuz it has a faint whiff of patchouli
harry: And donate ten bucks tomorrow!
It does.
But it would mean so much to the children.
ck: and it is all about the children
harry: it always is.
ck: who can refuse the chillins?
harry: Nazis.
ck: That’s right. And the Nazis will not win again. Not on my watch, No sirree Bob
harry: Or mine.
