Ernie-Aid Special Guest Star: Nancy

Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome my favorite lesbian and new best friend – Nancy from with today’s very important message:

We’ve all seen them. Out-of-work web developers with their pleading signs:

“Will provide development, testing and support services for web-enabled applications, either Intranet- or Internet-based, for food.”

Often we just look away.

But Ernie-Aid provided me an opportunity to stop looking away, to make a difference in the life of one of these unfortunates. Sure, Ernie is just one guy, but he’s one really entertaining guy with a cute cartoon alter-ego.

When I made my donation to Ernie-Aid, I learned that it takes just $357.14 a day to provide a Silicon Valley web professional with the basics of food, shelter and high-speed Internet access.

Now each month I get a touching email from Ernie, sometimes with photographs or snippets of code, telling me about the difference my generosity has made.

No, I can’t save all the unemployed web developers, but maybe I can save help save one.
