To my son Tommy,
Child poverty is no laughing matter and the dollar or two (or actually six dollars for our six noses) we spent to wear a read nose won't solve the problem by themselves. Still, a dollar could give a meal to a child living in a homeless shelter. Five bucks might be enough to give the proper antibiotics needed to a child suffering from pneumonia. And if we couple our red noses with a million (or even forty million) more red noses, we can make a serious dent in some serious problems. In the meantime we can have some silly fun while helping. During this stressful time of waiting for the bone biopsy results for your mom, we could use all the silly fun moments we can muster.
Sincerely with love from your dad,
