Help Shiloh Walker Help The Cyclone Victims

May 10, 2008

As per Let’s Gab:

From Shiloh Walker:

I’ve got an auction up on ebay to help raise money for the cyclone victims and I’m trying to get the word out.

Right now, it involves a couple of ARCs, several books, but more have added, and a GC to Barnes and Noble.

It’s up on ebay thru missionfish-the charity I chose was SAVE THE CHILDREN since they already have people in the country and have had some success getting much needed supplies. And they have an excellent rep for putting their money where their mouth is- 90% of all monies received go to their programs, which is beyond excellent for a charity.

I know some people feel not doing anything might be best considering the actions of the junta and hold off waiting until that situation changes, but I don’t think letting people suffer is a viable option either if there are ways of getting help in.

From Save the Children’s 5/9 update

Westport, Conn. (May 9, 2008) — The death toll in Myanmar continues to rise as a result of Cyclone Nargis and hardships for hundreds of thousands of survivors left in its wake are increasing. With 500 staff on the ground, Save the Children has reached 72,000 people, 24,000 of whom are estimated to be children, through the distribution of food, water purification tablets, plastic sheeting for shelter and other needed supplies

And this is part of the reason why I chose them-they already have people inside the country and they seem to be a trusted by those within the country, making it easier to get help in.

So far, the auction includes:

Recently donated but not yet listed items include books from Patrica Sargeant, Ann Jacobs, Charlene Teglia, Kate Angell & a gift card from the Brown Literary Agency for Barnes & Noble.
Recently added items include:

And more

Help the animals!

December 5, 2007

Hi, all you animal lovers!

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough
people to click on it daily to meet their quota of getting
free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals.

It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on the
purple box “fund food for animals” for free. This doesn’t cost you a
thing. (And we don’t make a penny from this either.)

Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits
to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for

Here’s the website again! Pass it along to people you know.

Happy Clicking!
