An Overnight for Japan: An update

I do this, so that I can be accountable, and so that I can perhaps encourage you to participate in the assistance effort in some way. In “An Overnight for Japan,” I set out to schedule an overnight appointment at a reduced rate, so that I could send...

An Overnight for Japan

I can’t sleep, so I’m blogging an idea. While I was in San Francisco this past weekend a client had to cancel an appointment due to a local tsunami warning.

It’s time to CARE.org

While I was walking through the Atlanta airport I saw a sign for CARE, an organization that seeks to give education and opportunity to women in impoverished places. Women make up half the world’s population, and when they are educated and empowered they become an economic force that hauls societies out of poverty. As I blogged recently about Maiti Nepal, I think it is important to help if you can. If this, or some other social...

Sex Slavery in Nepal

Hello, My name is Devon Hunter, and I saw the CNN story about your organization that helps care for victims of sexual slavery in Nepal. I was deeply moved, both by the generosity of Maiti Nepal and the strength of spirit in the girls and women who have survived brutality. I want to help financially, and I know how to find the information for your bank account on your website. I plan to donate, but I have a specific question first:...
