Strengthen the Good 

Some months ago, I ran across a weblog called Strengthen the Good, which describes its mission thus: "Using the power of weblogs for open-source charity. Don't just fight evil: Strengthen the good." Occasionally, STG highlights what its founder Alan Nelson refers to a micro-charity, "a small, inspiring charity, one with a real face, where $1 makes a difference."

The most recent STG post is about Susan Tom, a single mother raising 13 children, 11 of whom she has adopted, many of whom are handicapped or have chronic diseases. She sounds like a remarkable woman, with an amazing family. Please take a look.
