I work with Iowa nonprofits, and the donors who fund them — more here. But today, Friday, is perhaps a particularly good reminder about the importance of charities and charitable giving.

My favorite hour of the week happens on Friday — from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., Iowa time. Every week the great Tom Ashbrook of NPRs On Point summarizes the news of the week. It’s just a great news show, and especially on Friday, as it catches me up on anything I’ve missed during the week.

Later today, Monica and I will walk down from our new place to Fry Fest, to join everyone in a huge pep rally. Whether you are a Hawkeye, or a fan of another team, the kick off of a college football season is so much fun!

Two important institutions — Iowa Public Radio and The University of Iowa / your own alma mater — which both rely heavily on the generosity of charitable givers. Happy Friday to all!
