I've Donated, Now What?
It's so easy to open up our pocketbooks in this time of crisis for the victims of the Haiti earthquake, but as a friend recently mentioned "so totally preoccupied by the news from Haiti, and the people I know who have personal connections there. After you donate, then what to do?"
Do you have any suggestions on what we can do? For one, we can frequent the many awesome local businesses that are organizing to donate more money. Thanks, Milagros, for putting the list together.
