The failure of Madonna's efforts to build a much-needed school in Malawi is less about Madonna (as far as I know), and more about some key issues in celebrity-driven efforts at international development. This according to an article in The Guardian.

Japan relief

Japan devastation. Totally unbelievable. And nowhere near over.

You can CLICK HERE to make a donation to the people of Japan through the Red Cross.

Here's a nifty new way to give: Apple has created a giving icon on the home page of the iTunes store. Just look for the box with the red cross in the middle. It's still a donation to the Red Cross, but you won't receive any receipt or communications from the Red Cross. You'll get an email receipt from iTunes. Basically, it's a way to make a donation for the hyper-lazy (like me) who don't even want to fill in their credit card info online. Cool!

Let's all pray for the people of Japan.
