I can’t stop thinking about the UN-declared famine in Somalia. Just look at those hungry kids who have probably walked so many miles from their home in search of refugee camps, water or food. Apparently lots of kids are arriving too sick to be saved, and families have had to leave some children behind in order to save others.
Meanwhile, I discussed the horrid heat wave with coworkers all morning and just devoured a bowl of Davio’s fresh pasta, tomato, basil and mozzerella.
In addition to sending direct donations, if you want to help out in a small way through a product that contributes, try sustainable apparel through Threads4Thought, which partners with the International Rescue Committee (as well as the Natural Resources Defense Council), and has gotten a lot of great press and celebrity love for its efforts.

So pick up one of these summery items (links in the photos) for the weeks ahead. Hopefully you’ll think about the International Rescue Committee every time you wear it.
For the ladies…
Thanks to my sister-in-law Carly, who is currently wearing this, for the idea!
