What nonsense- after all the money that unions shake down from their emplyees so they can give it to Democrats, who in return won't do anything about the public worker pensions. That is bankrupting CA and every other state. This bill is nonsense.

And make the politicians wear badges on their suits sized in proportion to the donation (think NASCAR driver suits)!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
