I'll Feel Like a Dick All Day If I Don't Post Something About Haiti
You've probably already heard about it, but last night Haiti got it's ass handed to it by a 7.0-scale earthquake (that's massive, for all you non-natural disaster enthusiasts). This would be bad enough, but the whole thing is compounded by the fact that Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world. Basically, there's no money to rebuild or to help their people out or anything. It is, to put it mildly, a world of suck going on over there right at the moment.
So, if you're feeling like tossing a few bucks their way, here's an article from the Huffington Post outlining all the organizations that are set up to direct your money to the places it's needed most:
If you'd rather pretend that this isn't happening; that the world we live in isn't a cruel motherfucker of a planet and that when we die, we all get a high-five from Jesus and a basket full of jumbo Toblerones, here's a link to a video of a sleepy kitten:
HAHAHAHA, Oh, he's SO sleepy!!!
And yes, for the record, I have already donated money myself (to the Red Cross, specifically), which means I get to be as high-and-mighty about it as I please. That's the deeply selfish side benefit of doing good. Hell, for some of you, it might be the MAIN benefit. Either way, send some cash. They need it more than you.
