a message to friends who sent me a holiday card...
Thank you for sharing your best wishes for the new year.
TIme is limited. So are resources.
I did the following calculation
125 cards to mail out.
20 cards $12 (80 cents each) about $100
labels to print 1 cent each x 125 = $1.25
labels to paste on envelopes
about 10 cents of ink 0.10
Postage 125 x .45 about $60
The gross national product would increase about $160 if I would just generate some cards.
So I decided to create a holiday email message... and you'll be soon receiving a bulk email with some images of some of our travels in 2012....
So instead of increasing the national economy, I've invested $1 per person in trees. You have 4 trees planted in Honduras for you by Trees for the Future. Best wishes for the new year.
