For my Massachusetts friends


I donated to Rainbow World Fund to help feed refugees of the flooding of New Orleans.

Another charity I believe is interesting and worthy is Children To Children, which gives duffel bags and stuffed animals to children in foster care. Please consider making a bag or stuffed animal to donate to them.
