Celebrate March 25th.

Here are some folks who share my birthday today. Help us celebrate by supporting some of this great work:

* Honor singers Aretha Franklin and Elton John by supporting music education organizations. The list includes the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, the VH1 Save the Music Foundation, the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, and more.

* Honor Dazon Dixon Diallo by supporting her organization, Sisterlove, a Georgia-based organization that focuses "specifically upon the needs of women, particularly African American women and those of African descent, who are at risk for contracting HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases and infections."

* Honor writers Toni Cade Bambara and Flannery O'Connor by promoting literacy. You can teach someone to read or donate books to children for free.

* Honor athletes Sheryl Swoops and Debi Thomas by making physical activity a regular part of your life.

* Honor Star Trek astronaut Pavel Chekov by supporting science education.

* Honor feminist Gloria Steinem by honoring women.

Happy birthday to everyone born on March 25th, and a good day to everyone else!
