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.

So I wanted to add a post here with ways to help the people of Pakistan deal with this emergency.

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.
