Blockade this, why don'tcha?

Too much news today had me yelling at the radio and frightening the horses. Fortunately, my sister happened to chose today to ask about how to donate perfectly good unused medical supplies that might otherwise be trashed. While there are no shortage of organizations with appropriate credentials throughout the world, here's a short-short list:

Doctors without Borders
1-888-392-0392 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week)

Rainbow World Fund
4111 - 18th St, San Francisco, CA

Volunteer for Inter-American Development Assistance (VIDA)
6251 Hollis St., Emeryville, CA

I'd much rather concentrate on being a part of crossing those borders that can't be seen from space for the good of humankind, than participate in the screaming match that tends to forget that whatever the border, whatever the conflict, on both sides there are mothers and fathers and children who all basically want the same thing out of life.

Perhaps from time to time, if someone else happens to get a little fed up at how the grown-ups of this planet are running things, they might consider looking at that little ball of dirt and air and water spinning through space and ask themselves what they can do to help it along.
