Charity Work

   In the very first episode, El Dorado, Simon worked with a charity called the Starlight Foundation.  One of the charities designed to grant wishes to critically & terminally ill children.  This & subsequent pages are not only dedicated to the show & all who worked on it, as well as the gang in Simon's Workshop, but also to David's mother, Dinah Rappaport, to whom civic duty was of great importance.

    The list below is but a sampling of some of the great places to make donations.  The list has no order of importance & you can email The MGT. if you have a charity you would like to see included.  Also, please take a moment to think of what great organizations exist in your community.  There are sure to be places in your community where you can donate your time, energy, gray matter, etc., to help out your neighbors & even make some new friends.  One can never have too many friends.

    Each name below goes to a page with a brief explanation of what the organization does so that you can make a more informed decision before transferring to the linked website.  They are all great causes & the biggest problem you should face is which one to choose, if you wish to.  Eenie Meenie Minie Moe, anyone?

    If you wish to make donations In Memoriam or In Honor Of, just send the e-cards or notifications to themgt(AT) (don't for get to change the (AT) to the symbol).  Any donations of time, money, etc., that are emailed to me will be listed on the Donation Thank You List page so that the cast, crew, their families & any visitors to the site can see.  No monetary amounts will be listed.  The MGT., et. al. believes that any contribution should be celebrated.

    Thank you in advance for helping us to continue the great works started by this show 20 years ago.  It's never too late to pick up where they left off.
