The flood in Pakistan and how you can help »
The Guardian is reporting that 20 million people have been affected by the flood in Pakistan. As the water recedes, people are returning home to find nothing left. Many people had mud houses that were completely destroyed. As always, when a disaster affects people, animals are suffering too. The information about the effects of the flood on the animals is limited but many farm animals are in danger of starvation if they don’t receive help soon. They need food, water and medical attention.
The animal-welfare sites only mention the farm animals so I’m kind of like, oh great, they can get healthy so that they can be killed for food. But not all the animals are going to be food, I’m sure some are “working” animals, and regardless, I don’t want them to die a slow, agonizing death from starvation. So I have collected a bunch of sites where you can donate money to help these animals:
As much as I pretend I don’t, I actually do love people so I also recommend you donate either to Oxfam or you can also donate ten dollars to the UN refugee agency by texting “SWAT” to 50555. You know I love the text donations! Easy peasy.
Give what you can, guys! I know you jerks have some beer money your drunk asses could donate!
