And so it does, even in the face of tragedy, both personal and public. My own personal tragedy is still with me but the recent tragedy in Haiti cannot be visualised by those of us who haven't ever seen events on smaller scales.
That doesn't stop us feeling helpless, but we aren't. We can at least donate, this will help all those who can actively help these people. I've put up a button over there on the right, see it, linking to the Yarn Harlots page which will tell you how to donate. MSF is worthwhile so please give.
Also have a look at A Few Stitches Short recent post, if you don't want to just donate then make buying a pattern count
