Please be Grateful

for the constant food you have at your fingertips. The people of Somalia have been experiencing the worst drought for decades and that's just one country.  

This makes me feel selfish on so many levels. 

There are countless ways you can help, even just by making the smallest donation locally wherever you live. It's no coincidence that I bring this up a week before Ramadan, it just so happened I was struck with the above photo now. It definitely is an eye opener, and if anyone can guide me where to make local donations I'd really appreciate that. 

Otherwise, there are many websites we can donate to. We can start at the UN World Food Programme.
