These things come around as regular as clockwork. Gimmicky.Of course, if you really are a hardened boozer then giving up for a while and donating to charity may appeal to you [or not]. I would prefer to give to charity while enjoying a glass of something

If they only received what I would have spent on alcohol, they would be in for a thin time.

It's my birthday in October.

Fat chance of anything from me. grin

One day I will probably be extremely grateful to them for something/someone, until then I shall continue to donate to other charities that have touched my life. I can't do them all.
