International Day of Charity
Among all the more amusing celebratory days of the year, every now and then a very worthy one comes along.
I consider myself fortunate, living a fairly privileged life (despite the obvious challenges/losses), and as most of my avid readers know I have a few favourite charities, some of whom will be benefiting today.
It comes amid sad news for me too, having just found out that the young girl we were sponsoring in Haiti has disappeared amidst all the upheavals the country has recently been suffering. I just hope that she's found a safe haven to wait out the crises.
