Things are looking pretty rough for millions of families on the Horn of Africa right now. The worst drought in 60 years has turned the all ready struggling region into an enormous dust bowl and millions of people have been displaced and are starving. Why this is not on the front page of every paper on the globe is beyond me? Surely the immanent starvation of millions of people is the most pressing social issue the globe is facing at this time?
Social media users are usually pretty quick to respond to a crisis so I thought I would take the opportunity to help you all sleep a little better and encourage you to go to the Red Cross East Africa Drought Appeal and make a donation. Go and feed some folks, you were only going to buy a vintage tea towel with that money anyway.
