What a generous puppeteer you are Herr* Foerder!

I too would love to donate all my puppetry residuals from the last year 
to socialist charities. My problem is that while I live and work in 
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the only mid sized American city to ever actually 
have a Socialist run city government, darned it I know of one single 
socialist charity. In fact the term "socialist charity" seems to be an 
oxymoron.

This is not, after all, the place to discuss charitable donations, so 
please send me the contact information for the socialist charities that 
are the beneficiaries of your generosity.

Thanks
Herr* Moynihan

Come to think of it, isn't Peter Schumann, of Bread and Puppet from 
Germany? And isn't baking bread and feeding your audience after the 
puppet show sort of a socialist type idea?

Yummm. remembering the grainy bread and garlic butter... and of course, 
the puppets.
