If you can, please give.
One of my new favorites is the NATIONAL NETWORK OF ABORTION FUNDS, www.nnaf.org: Give in memory of Dr. George Tiller.
Doctors Without Borders, www.doctorswithoutborders.org, are often the last non governmental organization to pull out from war torn areas. They provide the only medical care many people ever see.
HEIFER, www.heifer.org, gets struggling rural families on their feet with gifts of training, livestock and trees. Give for no other reason that Rush Limbaugh made fun of them on his show.
Give to your local animal rescue group. My favorite is www.fluffbuddies.org, a great little group that placed over 200 cats in the last year.
Many of us are struggling this year, and cannot afford to write checks. If you can, give of your time. If you are gardening, plant a row for your local food bank.
Do what you can
Happy New Year.
