... summertime is often pretty rough on charities and non-profits.
Sometimes, this is good news, (I received an email that one organization's "cash flow has been reduced to a trickle," and since they never saw a flirtation with dissent they didn't support....)
But think of the organizations that help feed the poor who during the school year have access to other sources of meals.
Think of parishes whose regular contributors may attend Mass elsewhere during vacation times, (or yeah, may give themselves a vacation from God during the summer...)
