Love. it.

Did you see this?
RT @tferriss: New iPhone app gives you a virtual assistant, and refugees jobs. F-ing cool: http://www.causecast.org/news_items/9083-new-iphone-app-makes-jobs-for-refugees-in-dedaab-kenya/

And I love your blog Sarah.

That's awesome! You're setting such a good example, too -- it puts some pressure on the rest of us to step up and do something helpful in our communities! My favorite two charities are The Children's Aid Society (http://www.childrensaidsociety.org) and Heifer International (http://www.heifer.org). It's probably time for me to scrounge up a donation...

fantastic. thanks for this info. iParticipate.org has a similarly cool find-volunteer-opportunities mission, but I love that the Huffington Post is linking people to ways to take action while they're in the moment of _wanting_ to take action.

Very cool. Thanks for sharing it since I haven't had my HuffPost fix yet today.

Too often I read something and think, "Someone should DO something about that." Good to be reminded that that someone is obviously ME, and HP is making it easier.

I'm excited by their new book section, too. :)

Julie-- I hadn't seen that. Very cool.

Rebecca-- I'll have to check out your favorites!

Melinda-- Good to know. Thanks! And yes, that's exactly it. They're capitalizing on that very brief moment of "wow, that's sad, I wish I could do something." Well, you can! Genius.

Jessica-- Oh... didn't know about the new book section. Must go there immediately.

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)

  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
