Sometimes Jack Bog’s Blog blasts us. Sometimes it praises us. Either way,Jack Bogdanski’s takes are daily reading for us—and we suspect for many Portlanders.

We note all this because today is Bogdanski’s annual Buck-a-Hit Day in which each unique visitor to his site equals a $1 donation for some very worthy charities in this holiday season. And Bogdanski also provides other opportunities to donate beyond that, which we’ll let him explain.

And after you’ve helped out at his blog, please go over to WW’s Give!Guideand donate to any of the 79 awesome non-profits we’ve included in our annual holiday fund-raiser.
