Lilypie Kids birthday Ticker

We've gotten word from multiple sources confirming that everyone at Sera's orphanage in Liang Ping is okay. The building does have structural damage as one wall collapsed and there are large cracks in others, but all the people are okay.

The orphanages in China are called Social Welfare Institutes or SWI. They house orphaned children and senior citizens. It is wonderful that no one lost their life. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the nearby elementary school.

The other day, I posted a letter from Half the Sky with a link to their site. They are collecting donations to be used to help the SWIs and the children affected by this earthquake. Since then, I've received another email from them. They are now requesting that donations be given to Global Giving

I've added their widget to my sidebar. Click it any time to donate.

Thanks for getting the word out. Such overwhelmingly sad news.
