It works, here's another place to work it

I read yesterday in Laurie and Debbie's blog about a woman who was battered and needs financial help. It reminded me immediately of how all of you, my friends, came so recently to my aid. So, though it will stretch things just a bit here, I sent a little money her way. Not because it will fix the problems, but because it is what I can do. And I remember writer Sydney Smith who said, "It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little."

I encourage you to follow the the link to Laurie and Debbie's blog. Or go to the site they link to. Give just a little bit. It will make you feel better and it will make an enormous difference to this woman. Even if you just send a dollar, knowing there are people who care makes all the difference.
