The recent disasters really hurt. We all look for some kinds of healing. Donation not only helps the people in need but also comforts the soul of the donors who witnessed the vulnerability of human beings. Just read an article by Qiu Zhijie on "why and what to donate?" as an artist. Very inspiring!
Tobias is organizing a fundraising auction for the disasters tonight. It's good while we feel the urge to help out in China, we don't forget Myanmar.
