ETC: Give. You know you want to.

If you visit my site, then chances are good you're in the same glamorous, elite circle that frequents Pamie's fabulous site, So maybe you already know about her annual book drive, but it's such an excellent cause it bears pimping in as many places as possible.
I'm proud to announce we're sponsoring the villages of the Kancheepuram district of Tamil Nadu that have suffered from the effects of the Tsunami.

There are about 2400 children in fourteen villages who need help with books, school bags and uniforms.

The cost of one educational kit, sending one child back to school with everything he or she needs is 200 Rupees. At the current exchange rate, that is $4.61 USD. That's $5.76 Canadian. 2.47 UK pounds.

Your donation is 100% tax deductible in the US, as well as a few other countries.
Go to the book drive page for full details. To make your donation, scroll down to the bottom of the page and hit the "Donate" button. Even a donation of five or six bucks can make a difference for one kid.
