Strangercrombie What’s Your Cause?

Every winter, The Stranger has a charity auction called Strangercrombie, where we auction off great things (like a Vespa), weird things (like 16 boxes of porn), and things of dubious value (like, uh, ourselves) and throw the earnings at a local charity. For the past five years, the charity has been been Northwest Harvest, which has been giving food to the poor and hungry since 1967.
Last year, we raised (or, rather, you bid) $40,000. Which was great. We love Northwest Harvest. But is it possible we’re being a bit myopic? Are there other local causes we should consider?
What do you think, citizens of Slog? Which are your favorite causes?
