Many of you may already know of the famous Owlhaven blog. Mary, the author, is mother to ten children, four of whom are Ethiopian. Her sister is currently working as a nurse in Ethiopia, serving the poorest of the poor (I highly recommend reading her letters) and their parents are heading out in a few days to visit. Mary is raising money to send with her parents to help offset the rising food costs that have so devastatingly affected the people in this region. You have until Friday evening to donate money to Mary's paypal account. I know it's not one of the big-name charities, but I can assure you that all of this money will be going directly towards buying staples for these people who are in such dire need.
