Filanthropy Friday

Today President Obama will announce new investments in African agriculture.  It's a pretty simple concept of investing in long-term hunger solutions for Africa instead of just sending food aid.

As demonstrated in my many posts about cookie dough, Cadbury eggs and Girl Scout Cookies - I'm very anti-hunger.  

This week I donated $30 to Heifer International for bees.  Bees aren't as glamorous as an actual heifer (they cost $500), but apparently bees are extremely helpful for increasing agriculture production.  I hope the bees sent to Uganda will be nice, productive and sweet bees and not the kind that sting for no reason.  That would be a big Filanthropy Friday failure.
