Support sheltering families via Modest Needs

Modest Needs' donation page

Modest Needs - Donate Online

Modest Needs has an initiative to help those folks who are helping others—even as their own finances may feel the strain:

At Modest Needs, we want to support those families who are so generously sheltering the survivors of Hurricane Katrina. These persons - especially those already living paycheck to paycheck - will need our help if they are to remain self-sufficient in the wake of this catastrophic storm.

In response to Hurricane Katrina, Modest Needs has launched a special initiative designed to ease the financial burden placed on those persons who have opened their homes to friends, family members, and others displaced by Katrina.

I really like Modest Needs’ focus:

Modest Needs is a non-profit organization reaching out to hard-working individuals and families who suddenly find themselves faced with small, emergency expenses that they have no way to afford on their own.

I did my donation via their PayPal link, and it took about 90 seconds (no registration required).

Donating to Modest Needs:

[ Thanks for the heads-up, Leslie ]

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
