International Wear a Turtleneck Day

by admin on September 26, 2010

I made quick post on Facebook tonight mentioning that I was enjoying this week’s transmission of of Hearts of Space in honor of Cosmos’ 30th anniversary. A friend joked around that (I’m paraphrasing here) it was also the 30th anniversary of sketch comedy’s initial investment in turtleneck shirts.

I laughed. And then I had an idea.

Carl Sagan's Turtleneck
International Wear a Turtleneck Day

It made me want to declare the date of Carl Sagan’s birth, November 9th, International Wear a Turtleneck Day. It’s well into autumn for us northern hemisphere folk and seasonally appropriate for turtlenecks (even if not fashionably appropriate anymore). Then I thought of an earlier conversation I had today about making donations to charitable organizations and figured it could be a perfect occasion to to set up URL with information and links to already established and (transparent) well-researched websites that take donations for myelodysplasia.

If I move forward, you’ll be the first to know.

If you are going to give money to a charity, a well researched charity is the one to give it too. I’m feeling a little Speaker, so is a scarf ok if I don’t own a turtleneck?

No habla English, apparently.

Easycure, a Joe Speaker-style scarf will do! And Eightpans? I dare you.
