On Giving

I am not going to say anything about #KONY2012. Go here, here, or here for that. (Actually, I will say one thing: leave Carl Weathers out of this.)

But if you are looking to give to international charities that actually do something, try the HALO Trust, which has been active in Afghan de-mining efforts since 1988. It employs three expatriates in Afghanistan and thousands of actual Afghans. They do not have any fancy videos of which I am aware. They're too busy digging mines out of the dirt to make such videos.

That is all.
