Act Now!

I've waited over the past few days watching the news and trying to process what I was seeing. As I was surfing over the news sites I was seeing such compelling photography of this tragic human event. As my blog passes this week 140,000 unique visitors it suddenly occurred to me that I could put out this message to a lot of people! I know its easy to turn off the TV or turn away from the news and just hope that it goes away.... Its also just as easy to take a moment and give something to this effort. I've listed several ways you can donate right this very second.. Some you dont even have to give a credit can simply send a text message. So please Act Now!
