How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?

Apropos of absolutely nothing at all, I ran across this on McSweeneys Internet Tendency, and I thought it was too good not to share.

Amnesty International's Global Write-a-thon

I just signed up to participate in Amnesty International’s Global Write-a-thon, taking place December 7-10, 2007.

December 10th is Human Rights Day. To mark this day, thousands of people will gather across the United States and all around the world to participate in Amnesty International’s Global Write-A-Thon. Last year activists in more than 30 countries wrote over 100,000 letters to political leaders and others in a position of authority, to help make a difference in the life of someone whose human rights were being violated. Everyone can participate! It all begins with people just like you taking a few minutes to write a short letter.

I hope you will take part in the Global Write-A-Thon. This December you can save a life.

Register today at Amnesty International USA’s Sign up for the 2007 Global Write-a-thon.
