Help Pakistan cope with horrific floods

I am late posting this – and donating. After Haiti it seemed everyone was focused and mobilized but the truly awful disaster in Pakistan coincided with a bunch of personal life stuff and I was distracted. Also there doesn’t seem to be as much of it in the news as something of this magnitude should generate. So I wanted to add a post here with ways to help the people of Pakistan deal with this emergency.

The Nation seems to have the best round up of who’s on the ground and can aid people quickly.

And the news is covering the shortfall in donations and urgent need from the UN.

Please consider giving whatever you can ($10 helps too) to one of the organizations aiding victims of this catastrophe.

And pass it on – we all need to pull together for the good of everyone.
