Names for Charity
I've just found an inspiring story at I Should Be Writing about someone who is raising money for Ethopian girls who have been forced to give birth at just 12, often leaving them incontinent which causes the husbands to throw them out. £400 can change the life of one girl through providing an operation. The person raising money, Katey, is asking just £2 donation towards a names sheet for writers. This sheet has all the most popular names from 1904 to 2008 - very useful for any writer who has difficulty choosing the right names for their characters. I've donated and hope you will too at http://justgiving.com/ipreferhappyendings.
