Spreading Generosity Further Than Indonesia

International aid experts announced today that the outpouring of generosity to help those hit by the tsunami may endanger aid for other groups in need across the world. It's wonderful that so many Americans are joining their government in donating money to help the tsunami relief effort, but with so many "high profile" dollars going to that cause, the African AIDS crisis is being shortchanged.

This is why I made my annual donation to a cause other than the tsunami recovery, and I urge any of you who are caught up in this generous spirit of giving to turn to the overlooked situation of extreme poverty and illness in Africa.

Click Here to donate to UNICEF's "hope lives here" fund which helps stem the spread of HIV by caring for orphans of the disease and educating young people about preventing infection.
