2) "Leaving Dakota" is showing in Japan May 5th. All sales from that night will go to the Red Star Animal Relief Fund for furry victims of the tsunami. (You don't need to be in Japan to buy a print that night either, you can do it from my web page.) Facebook invite to the show here.
3) niamh_sage who's the moderator of our wonderful 2xcreative community is bicycling up Mont Ventoux in France to raise money for Alzherimer's which seems more and more important to me the older I get. You can help her out at JustGiving.
