Aid Organizations

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.

Compassion International

Children of Ethiopia Aid

United Nations World Food Program

Care

Oxfam America

UNICEF

Food for the Hungry

World Vision

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.

Abe is happy his Gee is here.

Here, he's talking to Susan on Skype and being held by his Gee while a photo is being taken by his Ma. Life is good for this little man. That's a lot of female attention directed his way.

I know Gee is glad to get her hands on him! And Abe looks like he's enjoying it as much as she is. Great photos!

Food for the Hungry (fh.org). A friend of ours heads this one up, giving us the opportunity to hear first hand about the amazing work they do.

Ditto to Pamela's question! It must not be hot any longer, 'cause Gee has a sweat shirt on. And yes, World Vision is great!!
