My morning ritual includes listening to NPR's Morning Edition or All Things Considered. That's where I get most of the answers to "Wait, Wait, don't tell me".
A few days ago I listened to a report about girls in a school in Kandahar, and when I heard those girls speak in amazingly perfect English, and listened to their aspirations, and ... well, my first thought was how could I go there and help them out. With a little googling, I found that they really only want people who live in Afghanistan, or at least know the language, so my current employers are safe. (Given the chance, I would be on a plane...)
Here's the report: NPR
Since there was no information about how to contact the agency responsible for this, I looked it up and donated $$. It's called the Afghan School Project run by the Afghan-Canadian Community Center. Everything I read is impressive, and maybe you'll feel something, too.
PS. Really, I've been knitting, too. Maybe tomorrow...
