World Vision Forced to Cut Aid to 1.5 Million

Well after my post this morning, I know where my economic stimulus check is going:
"(CNN) -- World Vision, one of the world's largest humanitarian organizations, announced Tuesday that it cannot feed 1.5 million of the 7.5 million people it fed last year..."
I think it is worth it to make a statement, if you plan to donate your check, and pledge that you are doing so on rise08.org.
