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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
