Countries around the world are coming through for the US and her needs right now. Here’s a link to a page detailing what each is doing. (I love the ones who just SEND, as opposed to asking what’s needed and waiting for a reply. Australia, for example, $10 Million!) :
Reading the list just makes you feel good. I’m always proud of my own homeland, the USA, when she’s there for others (which she always is) – and I’m touched to see the reciprocation.
I also came across a story on John Grisham. He has donated $5 Million Dollars (as much as some countries!)to the relief efforts. Equally as brilliant, he’s setting up a fund, Rebuild the Coast Fund Organization.
The staff will be comprised of “those who have lost their jobs and are familiar with the area to screen requests for help.”
If I didn’t already own every book he’d ever written, I’d make plans to buy them all (and Painted House, twice!).
Make each moment count double,
