Helping Mates.I get all sorts of curiosities in my inbox.
I'm on a stack of email lists, so it's never dull and I've got no excuse to bleat about boredom. I don't know what that is, in any case.
Anyway, I was asked to do a bit of begging on behalf of a mate of a mate, so here I am.
Anne's going for a run to raise money for Austcare, one of our humanitarian organisations. She has a personal link to Austcare's current project over in Darfur, so I'm more than happy to help.
Here's what Anne has to say:
I am doing the City to Bay 6k run to support the people of Darfur, Sudan. My son, Mark, will shortly be part of an Australian Army logistics team in Darfur to provide support to the United Nations humanitarian effort. The funds raised will go to Austcare who provide much needed aid to refugees in this war torn area. Your donation is greatly appreciated.
I tend to keep my donations to charities to myself, as I don't see that anyone else needs to know. In this case, however, I think that the more people that know and contribute, the better.
Please visit Anne's little page and make a donation if you can.
Thanks to Kae for the heads up.
