>Sun Microsystems is donating $0.10 to a food bank each time an Internet
>user sends an email msg to any (or all) of the three addresses below:
>   santa at north.pole.org
>   elves at north.pole.org
>   rudolph at north.pole.org
>Doesn't matter what the msg contains; it could be an empty msg, full of
>invisible holiday spirit. Pick your favorite and send email there a few
>times. If *everyone* on the net were to BCC all three addresses with every
>msg they posted to a list for one day, the counter would top out almost
>instantly, so this is like a weird and wonderful test of Mass Human Kindness.
>You can do your part to help big fat international corporations make
>good on their Promises of donations to charities. It only takes 250,000
>msgs to reach the $25,000 Sun promised to donate to a Bay Area food bank
