Via my blogpal bls over at The Topmost Apple I learned of the Blog for Relief day sponsored by The Truth Laid Bear.
Like bls, I will be sending a contribution to Episcopal Relief and Development, a worthy (and low overhead) organization that is already "on the ground". If you do not have a pet charity that you like giving to, please consider them. They do good work. If you know of a worthy charity that you would like to commend to peoples' attention, mosey on over to TTLB and let them know.
At this point I can't do much more than this (and pray). Lord, have mercy.
