It’s been some time since the last profile at STG. Frankly, I’m looking for a way to better manage the time constraints administration of STG requires given that it has a staff of one (me), and that staff is otherwise gainfully employed the remainder of his week. It may be some months before I reactivate [...]

Under Construction

Mon, 13 Feb 2006 11:37:10 +0000

For those who have visited Strengthen The Good before, it should be obvious that we’ve got a new look. I plan to re-launch the site in the future, but in the meantime, please understand that things ’round here are a work in progress. I’d welcome any feedback.

Susan Tom Gets What She Deserves!

Sun, 06 Nov 2005 14:56:56 +0000

In the past STG has featured Susan Tom[1], a remarkable woman who over the past decade or so has made it her mission to adopt and care for 11 special needs children. Some have had physical disabilities, some have had learning disabilities, some have had terrible illnesses. Three have died from their afflictions. I first heard [...]

Katrina Donations Update

Sat, 05 Nov 2005 19:42:45 +0000

Just a quick update on matching the good for Katrina: All the checks have come in and cleared, and I’ve begun making the donations. Oddly, the Red Cross wouldn’t accept donations online this afternoon, but I did make donations to the following groups per Mary’s request with her $1,000 match (the links are proof of [...]

Trackback Issue

Tue, 07 Jun 2005 18:44:45 +0000

With our last profile I recieved several emails from network members noting that their trackbacks were being rejected. It seems to be the result of my MT-Blacklist settings; I’ll try to resolve it, but thanks for linking, regardless.

Update From Bratislava

Tue, 07 Jun 2005 18:35:19 +0000

The books keep coming in Bratislava. Douglas has been kind enough to forward some photos — one which I’ve posted below and the others of which I’ve posted in the extended entry — so you may see some of the good you’ve strengthened (I particularly like the shot of the Slovakian student reading Ayn Rand). Over [...]

Strengthening The Good: Susan Tom & The Tom Family Education Trust

Sun, 22 May 2005 21:32:04 +0000

Update (11/6/05): For those coming here for the first time (and after seeing the Extreme Makeover Home Edition about Susan), please visit this latest update after reading the post below, and please note that we’re currently accepting donations for the Red Cross Katrina Relief fund, not Susan’s education trust. If you’d like to contribute to [...]

Another Bratislava Update

Sun, 22 May 2005 20:47:53 +0000

It’s been several months since I’ve profiled a microcharity, but the support for the Petrzalka library kept coming in, so I kept the profile up as long as I could. I am about to move on to our next microcharity, but before I do, I wanted to pass along this note from Douglas in Bratislava: The [...]

Bratislava Update

Sat, 15 Jan 2005 10:33:01 +0000

This today from Douglas in Bratislava: I want to share with you a bit of delight I enjoyed the other day, even more than getting books in the mail. We have received enough books that my desk was getting a bit cluttered, so I moved the stacks to a table at the back of my classroom. [...]
