In addition to the Red Cross, if you’ve got a few dollars left over from some newly acquired Christmas funds, might I recommend two more causes worth donating to. These are near and dear to my heart not because of the Red Sox connections, but because people in my life have been affected by both ALS and cancer.
Curt’s Pitch for ALS: Funds research into ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
The Jimmy Fund: Fights cancer in children and adults at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
If you can spare anything, I know they’d appreciate it. Thanks.
