Andy, I'm very happy to hear this.
some time ago you gave a donation mechanism to give funds to roadie's orphanage.
they will need it now.
how do i donate to them ?
There is a donate link on their webpage.
I just reread your post on the orphanage in Hati . I hope they made it ok. Sent a small donation
Tough job even in the best of times.
I am reluctant to give charity to disaster relief for various reasons, not the least of it is the fact that my government is so willing to give others my money without my permission.
Realistically though, the real issue is not knowing who to give it to, as there are so many scams out there, and so much corruption even with the legitimate programs. What I look for is a program that I know will get the $$$ directly to those in real need, without waste. There are a few that I give to on a regular basis. My belief is that it would be best if everyone chose just a few specific charities to give a decent chunk of money to each.
Thank you for giving me a specific charity that appears to be one of those charities. Please keep in contact with them, and let us know how they do in these difficult times. Global news is too overwhelming, but hearing about one tiny corner can be almost like hearing from family.
I think it would be a good thing to put up a post reminding all of the donation link for this place, as it might help give readers the incentive to donate. One click makes it easier, therefore more likely.
I am very thankful that you are ok. It is also great news that the orphans have been brought into safety and provided for! I heard about your friend Roadie. She is just as cute as I imagined. I am proud of you.
