Memo to new and pending parents:

If you give your child too long a name, it will not fit on business cards, desk plates, name tags, conference badges, place cards or file tabs. This effectively cripples his or her career before it begins.

Please, think of the admins.

Since a lot of readers here don't read me on Facebook, I want to share a charitable organization that I found. It's a UK based organization called ShelterBox that provides emergency shelter tents, camping stoves, safe water straws, blankets and other supplies to newly-homeless victims of disasters. Each box contains a tent big enough for a family of 10. The plastic box itself can be reused for many purposes.

Each box costs $1,000 to fill and ship, and though I don't think I know anyone who can afford to sponsor a whole box themselves, small donations also help, and I added mine which will be combined with lots of other small donors to make up a box.

If you're in the US:
http://www.shelterboxusa.org/

If you're in the UK or elsewhere:
http://www.shelterbox.org/

I'm glad I found this and I'm glad boxes have been deploying to give disaster-struck families a place to serve as their temporary home. I just wanted to share.
