Calamities beset us but we persevere. Here are a couple of worthy events to donate your time, attention — and money — to. On Saturday, August 22, OKRA
is hosting Save Mauritius' Reef
to raise awareness and raise money for the ecological catastrophe that has struck that gorgeous island; on Thursday, August 27, Tacolicious
is hosting a Lebanon Relief
event to help the country get back on its feet following the explosion in Beirut. Lower profile in the international news, but no less pressing, The Rooster
is hosting another clothing drive
. Details after the jump.
