Remember the Eddie Meath Penny Fund?
Up to the mid-nineties, the fund — founded by famed broadcaster Eddie Meath — raised money to buy toys for hospitalized children. Eddie gladly accepted pennies, but also requested “quiet money.”¹
While our mission is not so noble and given that pennies are passé, we are initiating the Talker of the Town Quiet Money Fund.
Last year (BELOW), we asked people to send donations via check or cash to David Kramer at 155 Avalon Drive, Rochester NY 14618.
Even more than money, as seen below in We need you!, Talker writers are, alas, feeling the strain of multiple commitments and demands on our time. We need writers, editors and marketers. (With enough hands, maybe we can actually make some money and end the Talker of the Town Quiet Money Fund.)
If you have enjoyed the magazine — always a communal endeavor — please consider contributing your own stories and/or images on whatever topics interest you. We very much welcome and need many voices.
Every page has the email contact: David Kramer firstname.lastname@example.org
So send along pennies, quiet money or a just a nice card (see below). Better yet, get involved.

As seen in Talker’s Foreign Correspondent sends donation home, Talker’s experiment is an “incomplete success.” But it’s not too late. and Thanks, Anonymous Donor!, Last year, we received several generous donations and some very nice greeting cards.
