If you haven't seen this on the news/online on yahoo or anything--there's a severe famine going on in war torn East Africa right now. It's sad to think that as desolate and deprived of basic necessities they are that their meager food supply is lowering EVEN MORE.
I was doing something on my paypal account and Paypal's homepage had a banner for East African donations.
You can also donate through various other sources like Red Cross UK and World Vision (where your donation will multiply TIMES 5!)
please consider donating financially to aid the suffering country!
