#38 & #39 way to change the world

I've been slacking on my little efforts to change the world. Today, I'm revisiting an old one because of this picture... The UNICEF blogger wrote, "It’s easy to forget that these figures are someone’s family members." And they are so right. So please donate now to help children affected by the Philippines floods.

And I don't want to leave out the family here in our own backyard. This week...donate to some place that is helping the flooded residents of Georgia.
Kroger supermarkets are asking customers to help victims of recent flooding by donating money to assist the Salvation Army Georgia Division in providing food, water, clothes, cleaning supplies and other necessities to flood victims.

Customers can give money to benefit the flood victims by "rounding up" their Kroger purchases to the nearest dollar through Saturday. Customers also can make donations at any Kroger in Georgia.
