Originally, Strengthen the Good was going to focus on "micro-charities": "charitable opportunities that are simple, personal, non-bureaucratic [and] inspiring."
That was before Hurricane Charley.
While there will undoubtedly be small causes to come, the immediate need is for big, big help.
And you can be part of it. The Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice, in a Florida town that was lucky enough to miss the worst of Charley, has promised to match any contributions to its special Charley relief fund up to $100,000.
If you have friends or family in Florida, or even if you don't, please think about joining in.
