Day 23- AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety and 9:30

My day was made last year by a fortunate sequence of green lights.  I often find myself hitting that same set of green lights, and it makes me smile every time.  What makes me smile even more is the fact that I have zero... ZERO... zero traffic lights on the route I take to work.  The timing is predictable.  I like that.

Anyway, what made the most sense to me for today's donation was to find some sort of organization that helps other people's rides to work or home or wherever else they're going to be just that much better.  The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety fits the bill nicely.

"The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety is dedicated to saving lives and reducing injuries on the roads. Since 1947, the Foundation has funded over 200 research projects designed to discover the causes of traffic crashes, prevent them, and minimize injuries when they do occur. We have used this research to develop dozens of focused, high-impact educational materials for drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists and other road users. Government agencies and legislators--as well as automobile clubs, driving schools, and school districts--turn to the Foundation's research to guide them in creating policies that can save lives on our roads and highways, teach adults how to drive more responsibly, and teach children about vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian safety."

9:30.

Why 9:30?

That's the time that Tom returned home this evening.  Puppy was really excited.  Me too.  We're glad he got to be there with his family to celebrate his grandma's birthday this weekend.  We're also really glad to have him home.

Thank you, 9:30, you made my day.
