Saving the Lives of Malnourished Children

A few years ago my friend Allison left theatre to go save the world. She used to work in development (that's confusing theatre lingo for fundraising), and decided she wanted to use those skills to save lives. Nowadays she works at Doctors Without Borders, doing just that. She sends this:

Right now, we are participating in something of a contest to get American Express to donate up to $1.5 million towards our work saving the lives of malnourished children. If you are an American Express card carrier, please take a moment to go here and vote for our project. If that link did not just send you to our project, please search for the one called "Saving the Lives of Malnourished Children." Voting ends September 9th. It is a wonderful project that uses an amazingly innovative and simple method to treat malnutrition on a massive scale.

And you'll be helping Allison do her job. Which is saving the world.

Okay, I'm off to a Fringe show. Go vote for Allison's project. Please.
