"Snopes" (www.snopes.com) is one of the best 'definitive' sites for checking out hoaxes, scams, and other internet 'garbage' that clogs our inboxes. This 'gas out' thing is so old that it has dust and mold on it. Internet users are wise to check out Snopes for almost anything except messsges from friends and family before passing it on - and even those should be checked out too.

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.
