-------- Ah, an opportunity to assuage some of the guilt syndrome: I work with a small non-profit theatre company ( . I have a link button for the theatre's website at the top of my browser. Whenever I feel the need to buy something from, I click on the Theatre West button, am whisked instantly to the theatre's website, where there is a big button on the upper left marked " - click here." I click that button (total clicks thus far: two) and am whisked just as quickly to amazon's website. From that point on, everything I buy has a five-percent portion of its purchase price deducted and donated to my theatre company.

Amazon has this arrangement with lots of non-profit organizations. is merely the one closest to my heart. So when the occasion arises for a purchase at, here's a way to feel a little better about it.
