Catastrophic Events

So many tragedies have happened over the last few weeks. The cyclone in Myanmar, the earthquake in China (I just watched video of them pulling live children from the rubble of that huge school), tornadoes in the USA, forest fires in the USA, and a highly active volcano in Chile.

This morning on NPR, I heard interviews with two organizations that are on the ground in Myanmar and have been there since before the cyclone, so they are entrenched and can help aid these people easier than the US or other foreign countries. One is Save the Children, the other is Doctor's without Borders. The biggest concern now for Myanmar is the secondary catastrophe's, the disease from lack of water and sanitary conditions. If there is anyway that you can give a little to these organizations or any others that you are aware of that are helping in any of these situations, please do so. Every little bit helps.

If you go to either of the websites above, they are both helping in China as well.
