At the risk of sounding-holier-than-thou and self-congratulatory, patting myself on the back, announcing what a generous person I am, or practicing “donation narcissism,” I’ve decided to start a new tradition. On my birthday, I will make a donation in the name of someone I love, be it friend or family member. My only selfish rule is that the non-profit be an organization that I also support or believe in. Feel free to adopt this tradition and pass it on.
P.S. Cake. That never changes, even for a selfless lass like myself.
