A Better Way to Spend 25 Bucks

Relief for Cyclone Sidr

WHAT: A powerful storm that tore through Bangladesh in November, killing 3300, injuring 52,000, and destroying over 550,000 homes and 2 million acres of farmland.

WHO: Catholic Relief Services' (CRS) South Asia Severe Weather Fund (donate.crs.org)

WHY: CRS is a lean, top-rated charity that's been in that country since 1971. If you can skip the sales rack at J.Crew just this one time (how many boyfriend tees does a girl need?), with the $25 you save, CRS can provide a family with 15 days' worth of food, or outfit a school with a chalkboard, chalk, and three desks and chairs.
