People need your help.
At this point, there is probably no one who has not heard about the
attacks against American cities on Tuesday, 11.September 2001. A lot
of us have felt angry, stunned, and helpless in the face of this
disaster, and we've wanted to find a way to somehow offer aid.
Well, now you can.
Amazon have set up funds that will allow us geeks to donate money
via the net to the Red Cross. Even if
you can't donate blood, you can help! If you
have a PayPal account, you can donate money straight from that; if you don't or you want
to just use a credit card, you can donate through Amazon.
We were all affected by Tuesday's attacks. Even those of us who are not
Americans were affected. We worry about our friends in New York and DC,
or who may have been flying yesterday morning. We watch the news and
stare in disbelief at the smoking holes where the World Trade Center towers
used to be. We consider the coming months with worry, concerned about
what will happen to the world when America retaliates for what the
President has called an act of war. In this time, it is very important
that we focus our efforts toward helping recovery...and let the guys with
the big guns focus on retaliation.
So go do it. You don't even have to get up out of your comfy computer
chair. Go to the web page and donate. There are people who need your help.
