Blog Quake Day

THE 26th of October is Blog Quake Day. Desipundit assures me that even the smallest and least popular of blogs (see: The Daily Rhino) can have an effect, so I thought it foolish for me not to at least write a paragraph.

I'm hardly an altruistic person. But if I look back on my last decade, the times I've gone out of my way to help others stand out as memories I'm not only attached to, but proud of. Helping someone you will never meet, with an action as simple as clicking a mouse or picking up the phone, makes you feel good about yourself, however briefly. Donate your time or money for your own wellbeing, as well as for that of the quake's victims.

No matter who we are, we can all do something. So do.

For those in the UK, take a look at Pickled Politics for ways to help.
Instapundit points to its brown cousin, Desipundit, which lists more channels for your much needed help.

Whilst the last 12 months have been more than tumultuous, now is not a time for relief-fatigue. The bleak and unforgiving winter of the Himalaya will ensure that the current death toll of around 70,000 will soar.
