giving it away.

I think we would all agree that part of a successful life includes providing for those less fortunate.

After staring at a mind-boggling list of immensely worthy and reputable channels for Haiti relief (you can find a very good list here), I just donated to these guys:

I like the simplicity of their mission: "Our work will be finished someday when every needy person in every distressed corner of the world has a pair of shoes."  It seems like one of those small, practical things that is easy to overlook, and these guys make it their entire focus.

I guess we're all trying to do what feels right.

Like Shaq.  He's organizing too.
Shaq wants Kobe and LeBron in dunk contest
"Half the money go to the people of Haiti and the other half go to the winner."

... half.
