I've been trying to get more into helping charities, and sometimes it's easy to feel overwhelmed with how much seems to need doing. So I just thought that it might be a good idea to share stories of charitable organisations/events/etc that are doing well. Sort of remind everyone every little bit counts.

For example, I'm a regular reader of Cake Wrecks, and their Christmas Charity Countdown always warms my heart, particularly this: http://www.cakewrecks.com/home/2011/8/25/water-works.html

My own area of expertise leans more towards nature conservation, and there's a sweet story I learned in class; the Mauritius kestrel is only found in a tiny area, and thanks to invasive species and tropical storms the population dropped to only four birds in total. Gerald Durrell and Carl G Jones fed the remaining wild pair enough to boost their egg production and hand-reared the chicks, and now there are about five hundred Mauritius kestrels in total. A small thing overall, but it's still impressive.
