Signal Boost for Haiti
So I'm sure you all know that there was a 7.0 earthquake in Haiti yesterday. Thousands are dead, thousands are missing. Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world, and nowhere near equipped for this kind of disaster.

This is a signal boost for the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Oxham International, the LJ Help Haiti community, and everyone else accepting donations. Please help any way you can: Jessie commands you!

Seriously though, thank you.

Help Haiti the fandom effort

In slightly relevant news, it always amazes me how fandom pulls together when things like this happen. I mean, the Help Haiti community was up within hours of the disaster, and they're already pulling together a fandom auction to raise money. It's a group of smart, dedicated, thoughtful and committed citizens, and I am proud to be a member.
