Gideon's Blog

In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

Something I did not know: the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, whose primary mission is to help needy Jewish communities abroad, also provides assistance to non-Jewish communities in times of natural disaster and the like. They've set up a special fund to raise money for communities that have been hit by the tsunami. Information is here. I note as well that a donor to the International Rescue Committee, which I noted below is a charity I've supported for a long time, and which will surely be one of the biggest players in responding to the crisis, will be doubling all donations to the IRC up to $1000 per donation made through their website before the end of the calendar year.
