Habitat for Humanity Noncoincidence

I am at my Plymouth State University office.  I have just opened my University e-mail Inbox, and found the following message from Ms. Diane McDonald, whom I do not know:
I just brought up my website yesterday, (Diane C. McDonald) and thought I ought to check out in case it was something I didn't want friends to accidentally stumble upon.

Imagine my surprise when I saw that your website chronicles your travels in Romania, while mine is fundraising for a Habitat for Humanity trip to Romania.  

Just thought the coincidence was too good not to share.
And a good Scottish name to boot!

I have confirmed the authenticity of this project.  My donation to Diane's Romanian Habitat for Humanity project is already sent.  The link is at   I hope a few of my loyal readers will also be able to help.



  1. Dear Duncan,

    And yet another Scottish namesake has found her way to this post! I actually work with Habitat Romania and found your post while browsing for HFH Romania-related news. Just thought I’d write a little note to say thank you for your donation and also for posting this on your blog! Habitat Romania is able to make a tangible difference in Romanians’ lives because of supporters like you and Diane McDonald. Thanks again for your generosity!
