Earthquake Aid Update

Just a heads-up that one of my favorite "small is beautiful" relief organizations, the Central Asia Institute, has extended its deadline for donations to its earthquake emergency fund. 99 percent of your donation goes directly to boots-on-the-ground relief in the mountainous areas of Pakistan; that's awesome. I'm sure many of you have seen recent news reports showing the misery of earthquake victims as winter hits this region...lack of food, children without warm clothing or even shoes, people dying of easily treatable upper respiratory infections. Please go to CAI's website, read about what they do...and if you have some change to spare, send it. Every little bit helps, and lots of little bits add up.
