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.
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.
