Strengthen The Good #3

This month, the featured micro-charity is The Garden of Angels.

This is an organisation that works to provide names and legal, honorable burials for abandoned newborns. More importantly, it also does its best to make sure that newborns aren't abandoned in the first place.

So rather than just breath a deep sigh when you see yet another story of a baby's body being found in a garbage bin, do something about it. You could donate a few bucks, or link to the strengthen the good website, or to the The Garden of Angels page directly. Or just pass around the message that such an organisation exists, via word of mouth or inter-office e-mail. Every bit helps, and being a micro-charity, even a single dollar can make a difference.

BRISBANE, Australia, Oct 4 (AFP) - Hundreds of airline passengers suffered disruption Monday when a major regional airport was shut down for an hour after a humming and vibrating adult sex toy was mistaken for a bomb, police said.

The vibrator was discovered at 9:15 am (2315 GMT Sunday) by a security officer who checked out a suspicious package inside a rubbish bin at the terminal cafeteria of Mackay Airport in the northeastern state of Queensland, a police spokeswoman said.
