An opportunity to help

As mentioned in this post, I was waiting for Foundation Beyond Belief to put up a crisis response page.

Today an egg, tomorrow the world!

Man, you give them a millimeter, they take a centimeter. We had a successful fundraiser for the Kasese Humanist School — they just wanted a chicken coop and a flock of chickens so the kids would start the day with good nutrition. And they got that. Here are these kids, grateful for an egg. But …
