Charity of the month
Meat Free May with Friends of the Earth
I am a strong supporter of the charity, Tzu-Chi.
Tzu Chi Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1966 by Dharma Master Cheng Yen in the impoverished east coast of Taiwan. The Foundation has been contributing to better social and community services, medical care, education and humanism in Taiwan for over 45 years. Master Cheng Yen firmly believes that suffering in this world is caused by material deprivation and spiritual poverty. She felt that "lack of love for others" has been the root of many problems in this world. "To save the world, we must begin by transforming human hearts."

Mothers' Bridge of Love (MBL) - Help Chinese Children
MBL is striving to introduce an authentic China to the West and to
disseminate information to people in China about the lives of adopted
Chinese children and of overseas Chinese in the West. Through this
bridge it is hoped that both cultures will be better able to understand
one another. MBL was founded by Xinran, the Chinese authoress of The
Good Women of China' and more recently, 'Sky Burial'. It is a registered
charity and would welcome support or donations.
