Partners in Health (one of the first in quake-ravaged Haiti, and still helping there and in other disaster-stricken or war-torn areas)
Tearfund. This UK-based group has been working in Pakistan, even before the devastating floods, and they get around the reported Taliban abuse/corruption by distributing funds directly to their members on site, in order to help the people who need it most.
Soles 4 Souls. When you walk everywhere, caring for your feet is important. Soles4Souls provide shoes for the impoverished in underdeveloped nations, and also for victims of disaster all over the world. One dollar guarantees one pair of shoes donated to someone in desperate need.
So the holidays might not just net us plenty of Snape, but also help out some folks that need it. :)
We say the more the merrier, so if you haven't already, consider signing up for and pointing your artist/writing friends to snapelyholidays 2010 exchange!
