Dear Bill,

I sat next to you during one of the baseball playoff games recently after we'd both purchased our tickets from the same scalper. We managed to have a good time even though I was in outfitted in Cardinal red and you were in Giants orange. During the game, we made a bet on the outcome of the series-- if the Giants won, I would donate $20 to charity, and if the Cardinals won you would donate $20 to charity. We both know how that turned out-- congratulations on the World Series victory.

You mentioned that you were particularly fond of charities that work with animals. In light of Hurricane Sandy's attack on the east coast, I have made a $20 donation to the Humane Society's Disaster Relief fund on your behalf. They are working along the east coast to help both people and animals that have been affected by the storm.

I doubt you'll ever read this, but I'm posting it in case you someday stumble across it. Based on our conversation, I am confident that you would be happy with my settling the bet in this way.

-Patti

reminded of this by your tweet about non-redcross options and this, too, here's another option should you be in the sort of situation again -- not msf, they do domestic and international work, and they also do animals as well as people: http://www.ramusa.org/
