It’s hard to write a perky, happy blog today with all the news of the natural & man-made devastation occurring in Japan and the Pacific. Or the political/military devastation occuring in parts of the Middle East. Or the floods in our own country.
You can’t save the world. But you can help save a life. Donate to a global relief organization like the Red Cross or Doctors without Borders. You can even text a donation to REDCROSS by phoning 90999 to give $10 immediately.
Also, if you can spare the time, volunteer at a local organization. Donate clothes to a shelter or Goodwill Industries. Donate Blood. Helping really helps. Handwringing and stressing really don’t.
