OK, I'm joking.

But this is a PSA to remember that we're supposed to spend more on matanos la'evyonim than on MM or seudah.

For those who worry that the day is too frivolous, a sizable contribution can help.

There are a lot of people struggling this year. Let's all do whatever we can.

Our tzedaka theme is food. We give food so those that are busy get to eat a bit on Purim. We donate to the stomach organization.

Rambam is my man and always will be. Many years ago I decided independently that it made no sense to spend a fortune on luxury goodies for people who need them like a second nose, and then and there decided that henceforth I would spend the lion's share on Matanot leEvyonim. I was thrilled to discover that that was what Rambam said to do. The man was, after all, a rationalist.

Do people really spend more on mishloach manos then matanos leevyonin?

Our tzedaka them is the Donors Fund!
On a more serious note, it really saved us on a recent audit. So worth it.

I'm actually debating our theme now!

I know I want to give one significant chunk to CSSY (a Crown Heights fund)
one chunk to Charity for Israel
considering also giving to some struggling families we know, either directly or to their kids' schools.

We have a local organization called Yad Chesed that makes sure funds get out on the same day. I'm grateful they make it so easy.

Zaq, I like the idea of Rambam theme!
