after having painted and sent out 34 stones this week
I am able to donate $170 to ShelterBox USA
... I have many stones left ...
you may participate in this effort with me HERE
After further research and consideration, I have decided to designate future donations to be made to the organization Doctors Without Borders. My reasoning is that in the coming months this terrible event will evolve into a major health crisis (much as it did in Haiti). In developing nations, care for the sick and injured is already a precarious enterprise - and a disaster like this one easily topples whatever basic system was in place.
thank you - salamat - for joining with me
