Ready, set, match!

Starting at 10 a.m. tomorrow (that's Tuesday, August 18) the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan is matching donations to Arts and Culture organizations in Michigan. They've got a cool million to burn, but once it's gone, it's gone.

An organization totally worth donating to is InsideOut Detroit. InsideOut, according to poet Christine Rhein, "engages Detroit children in the pleasure and power of reading and writing, placing professional writers in schools to help students develop their self-expression and give them opportunities to publish and perform their work." The folks who work with this organization are great. I know a lot of them personally, so rest-assured that your dollars are well spent supporting their work.

So set your watch, Blackberry, i-Phone, or whatever to alert you that at 10 a.m. tomorrow you need to be logged in at donating to InsideOut.
