Charities - Big and Small

Last night we made a donation to the Red Cross for their Myanmar Cyclone Appeal. It looks as though up to 100,000 people may die as a result (of the cyclone, not our donation). There's very little food or clean water, even at the best of times, but these guys in Myanmar have been wiped out by a three and a half metre (12 feet) tidal surge. These poor buggers require urgent assistance or disease is going to wipe out thousands more. Please give if you can. It's easy to do online.

I'm no fan of the military junta ,nor democratically-elected Labor governments come to think of it, but that's no reason not to help the people out.

The little charity? The Boy's MS Readathon. Thank you to some Japanese friends who sponsored him. So far people from across the country, South Korea and Japan have gotten in on the act. A big thank you to all of you.
