January, February March Movies and Money For Charity

I’m so behind with this but unwilling to let a decade long tradition go by the wayside. I hope you’ll participate!

You know the drill, add your 5 words (or less!) to mine in a comment and earn $1 for charity. Once we get to $100 the person with the most reviews will choose the charity. Click here to see the past winners, the charities they chose and the other reviews you can add to. Anyone is welcome to join in at any time. Click here to see past movie posts.

We’re at $72 right now.  Your charity could be next
