need to get off of santa's naughty list?

I received this email from Darrell Miho (my wedding photographer and old college friend) and I thought the readers of this blog might want to help him help the Asian Pacific Women's Center:

... the Asian Pacific Women's Center would like to have a DVD player for each of the units in their shelter. i am going to go buy 6 of them at Best Buy for $43.29 each. if you would like to donate 1 please let me know and send me your address so that i can include you as a donor and APWC can send you a receipt. this donation is tax deductible.

for those of you who don't know, the Asian Pacific Women's Center (APWC, Tax deductible ID: 93-1102854) is dedicated to providing a safe haven and support services for women and children who are survivors of domestic violence. their mission is to provide an environment that is sensitive to the cultural and language needs of Asian and Pacific Islander domestic violence survivors and their families, as they acquire the necessary skills and personal strength for self-sufficiency and violence-free lives.

as one of their many volunteers, i have seen first hand the wonderful work APWC does for their residents. the shelter is a beautiful place where the residents can feel safe as they move forward to provide themselves with a happy and violence-free home. for more info, please visit their website at:

to see other items on their wishlists, please visit:

thank you for any help you can provide APWC and their residents. i probably need a lot more bonus points to get off the naughty list, but this should help. =)

take care and happy holidays!

may every day be christmas

I pointed out that they might need DVDs for the players, so he's taking donations of used or new DVDs as well (G or PG rating, please). Jim and I will be donating $ for a DVD player and some DVDs, please join us and help support a worthy cause.

Why doesn't Darrel organize an event for this?
