Important Message

Below is a re-send of this message, which originally posted yesterday but has since been updated to include the correct donation link. Thank you all.


We are interrupting our normal Bubble 3.0 publication sequence to convey an extremely important message.  We will resume publishing Bubble 3.0 on Friday with Chapter 16 on the ultimate star of this project, the Fed. 

If you are like me, you feel both horrified and helpless over the tragedy in Ukraine.  Also, if you’re like me, you associate the Salvation Army with picking up used clothes, ringing bells outside stores at Christmastime and, maybe for old-timers like me, the Jean Simmons character in the 1955 movie Guys and Dolls.  In other words, you wouldn’t expect it to be active in Ukraine; I know I didn’t.  However, I was wrong – actually, very wrong. 

The linked pages below will give you some idea of the extent of their relief efforts in Ukraine.  It is surprising and impressive to me, and I hope it will be to you, as well.

Accordingly, here’s a way to no longer feel helpless:  My wife and I are offering to match the first $25,000 of donations to the Salvation Army’s humanitarian activities in Ukraine.  To make it as easy as possible for you to donate, our representative at the Salvation Army, Marci Servizi, has provided this link.   Using this allows her the ability to track the amount of funds that come in as a result of this Special Edition EVA. Additional information can be found here:

If you would like to contact Marci directly, her email address is:

Those who wish to donate via check should use the following address: 111 Queen Anne Ave. N. #300 Seattle, WA 98109 - Note: Please make your check out to the Salvation Army, Attn: Marci Servizi, with "Ukraine Relief - David Hay Gift Match" clearly indicated.

For those inclined to make a larger donation, you may want to check with your CPA about contributing appreciated stock.  That’s how we are making our gift and it typically provides a material tax benefit.

Thank you very much for your consideration of this request.

Pray for peace!

David Hay
