My good deed for the day

As I talk about here, I just donated funds via PayPal to a Boston-area store that's put out a special plea for help.

Pandemonium Books of Cambridge (OUR FAIR CITY), Mass. is a science fiction/fantasy/gaming store which hosted a musical performance by s00j and a reading by Sooj's friend catvalente last December (which yendi wrote about here); that's how I heard of the place. On Thursday, the store's owner and president posted this plea to help the store dig out from under a significant debt brought on by a difficult year of operation.

People can support Pandemonium Books either by buying T-shirts or making a direct donation. I don't need T-shirts, but I made a small donation because I want this store to stay open. I've never been there (never got over to Cambridge the one time I was in the Boston area, back in 1998 for reasons that are sad reasons, so I won't repeat them in this post), but friends of mine swear by the place. (My LJ friends list alone has included four pleas from Pandemonium supporters in the past few days.)

So a store that I've never been to and never bought from is getting support from someone like me who's 3,000 miles away. Yeah: The Internet can be a good thing.
