Super

Excellent Jerimee. Most of us have what we need and have some left over after our monthly expenses. I originally posted American charity organizations to send bucks to that do not use a large percentage of that money to pay for administrative costs so that most of the donations go to the people of Haiti. You have added to that...and I see that James has also done that in response to your blog post. It heartens me so much.

Thanks. Hopefully the folks that either post regularly or just come in to read our remarks make the effort.

We've donated to Shelterbox.

$1000 sends a box containing shelter, blankets. water bags and purifiers, a stove and other living essentials...enough for 10 people. Dkos members have collected enough for 56+ boxes and the boxes are already arriving in Haiti. I wonder if any of the right-wing blogs have done anything? Anyone know?
