So anyway, here's what I've been doing this morning:
- Slate has a nifty Middle East Buddy List online, which you can use to help you sort out the Israel/Palestine/Lebanon mess (good luck on that)
- Charity Navigator rates charities of all kinds and has information on philanthopy
- You can knit for the greater good and donate warm items to Afghans for Afghans or the Dulaan Project (which ships items to Mongolia). I also found a link on the Afghans site to a new book, Knitting for Peace, which sounds pretty cool. If you click through the Afghans site, Amazon will give them a % of the sales price.
- Time Magazine picked The Human Clock as one of the 50 coolest websites of 2006. I think it's a terrific timewaster. Also on Time's list: Cute Overload and a Jackson Pollock page (click on your mouse to change colors).
- Archie McPhee. If you visit Seattle, you should go to their store. If you don't visit Seattle, the website is still fun.
