Blog Quake Day

As many of you know a horrific earthquake hit South and Central Asia almost a month ago. The need for donations remains immense. DesiPundit has nominated today as Blog Quake Day (found via Chapati Mystery, Danial, and Planet Granada; see also Avari-Nameh for more good links). Please donate to anyone you feel comfortable with. In addition, I’ve been working with people on the ground to get supplies and money over there and a friend is working with the UNDP to raise funds. His details are below (if you do donate this way, please indicate in the notes field that you heard about it through “” We won’t contact you, but it’s to let us know how effective this medium is for appeals.)

One of the best stories I’ve read coming out of the quake is this one, because I worked as a consultant for the government of Estonia for three months.
