I'm not sure which of these aid organizations are the best, but I at least wanted to direct anyone who might be interested in giving.
Children of Ethiopia Aid
United Nations World Food Program
Food for the Hungry
If anyone has useful info about any of those organizations or can recommend another, please leave a comment and I'll be sure to look it up and post about it. Like my friend Pattie said, this is the kind of situation that makes me want to stand up and scream. Loudly.
I read recently about a modern-day hero after the earthquake in China. This story is astounding. The compassion in this woman's eyes is so evident. You can read it here.
