Arkansas Gives: Our choice for the day is Lucie's Place

It is Arkansas Gives day, the day when contributions to many local charities can bring additional contributions.

Donate online between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Charities will compete for cash prizes for the most individual donations and the most dollars. And, of course, the contributions help regardless.

Everybody has their own favorite. But I'll be sending something again to Lucie's Place, the small but growing effort to provide shelter and support for LGBT youths.

Here's the online link to give. It takes you specifically to Lucie's Place, but you can click the "search" box on the page to find your own favorite charity if you prefer.

Lucie's has a modest goal of $30,000. It needs it, having just opened its second home. You'll be in good company. The Daughters of Charity just provided Lucie's with some important support.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
