This week has been a hard one to endure. In the past, these sort of disasters became a part of the cultural landscape of our day to day lives through media, the situation became so pervasive that people were desensitized to the abject horror of it all.
Yes it can be graphic. Yes it darkens the soul to think to long on the suffering. That would be the reason why action must be taken. We should help every way that we can.
There is a great fundraiser going on at Indie Fixx.
Its merely an auction. Bid on some lovely crafts. Each day there will be new items to bid on. 100% of the money goes to the Red Cross.
If you want to give back you can also visit ETSY.com. Some sellers on their site are giving some if not all of the proceeds from their merchandise straight to the relief effort.
Every little bit helps.
