Benefit for a Tacoma charity?

Here’s an e-mail I received about how one reader plans to spend her economic-stimulus check. Perhaps our friends at the Global Neighbors Project could stand to benefit:

The stimulus refund is as nonsensical as raising your children’s allowance when you can’t pay the mortgage. I plan to use my “refund” to support groups that will removed our country’s current “leadership,” oppose nuclear weapons, and promote peace and social justice. Some of the money will also go toward support of an HIV/AIDS Center in Lesotho, Africa.
