Help save Darfur

Darfur has been saturated in a deadly conflict for over three years. At least 400,000 people have been killed; more than 2 million innocent civilians have been forced to flee their homes and now live in displaced-persons camps in Sudan or in refugee camps in neighboring Chad; and more than 3.5 million men, women, and children are completely reliant on international aid for survival. Not since the Rwandan genocide of 1994 has the world seen such a calculated campaign of displacement, starvation, rape, and mass slaughter.

This extremely harsh issue has been burning in my mind for a few months now, I've donated money here and there, but actually coming together as a community would be a great project to help fund money to the genocide in Africa. Hopefully this upcoming year the BB$ crew can organize a fun and productive way to fund money to these people in desperate need. If you would like to donate to these organizations please check out.
