Re: How Do I Get Rid Of A Door?

Someone at my company just sent this to the internal mailing list:

Does anyone know what to do with an old, but otherwise perfectly functional wooden door with built-in glass window on the upper half? I'm planning to take it to a Recycling Event this Saturday, but I'm afraid that they will just dump it in the trash. I'd hate for it to go to waste if someone out there could use it. Does anyone know where I could take it to help it find a new home?

Thanks,
Barry

Using a forged "From line" (I'm friends with this guy), I replied:
Hi Barry. You might consider sending this to "Doors For Moors," (http://www.doorsformoors.org) a charitable organization that accepts used doors and donates them to the nomadic people of northern Africa. It sounds like a really worthwhile organization -- according to their website they've sent over two dozen doors to the former inhabitants of Mauretania since 1998!

If I can make even one person's day in the office a little more surreal, I feel I have done my job.
