Just because it's online doesn't mean it isn't panhandling.

All wonderful ideas...I expect nothing less from you Farkers. Maybe by the time it's all done there will be one we can actually use.

So far there's a shiat-ton of people donating artwork to sell, a car wash, bake sale, etc. Figured you all might know some creative online resources that would work.

The donkey shows in TJ could always use a special white girl. Tell her to tell them I sent her because there's a fistful of pesos in it for me. Tell her to skip the poverty tourism and just watch City of God or District 9 for her pity fix. The idea that some liberal arts major could do anything meaningful in a place without sewers and a water supply is laughable.

Ok subs, I donated. What subject do you teach?

She'll be with Operation Crossroads (the model organization for the creation of the Peace Corps), so I have a feeling that while she may not be able to modernize the entire continent, she'll at least do some good for a village or two.  Remember, even single drops of rainwater can fill a bucket if you give them long enough.

If you've been a high school art teacher for years, I'm surprised you're still at it.

I'd tell her the same thing I told an acquaintance of mine who's currently in Panama helping "the children".  There are plenty of people everywhere who need help.  No need to leave one's native Country, or in most cases even their COUNTY to offer assistance.  So.  NO.

Haha...yeah...it's one of those careers.  Anyone that can last beyond 5 years must have something at least a little wrong with them.  With me, it's the ability to laugh at most of the things that would make someone go insane.  Plus, kids like this one (who is now a grown adult) that keep you going.

BTW...just found out that someone from Fark was MORE than generous to the cause...Jennifer is beyond excited!  The main reason I posted here...that beyond all the snark and inappropriateness (which I enjoy sometimes BTW), there are some damn good people here.
