The TED volunteer translation project is a remarkable endeavor. And along with getting to see beautiful Arabic subtitles on my TED Talk, two super volunteers, Wolf Ruschke and Jens Heyer, did the German translation. Admittedly, Mister Splashy Pants is a bit hard to translate, but what they came up with is rather amusing: Mister Splashy Pants ( = wet/splashy/dirty underpants)
Breadpig made another visit to the SF SPCA to plan how we'll spend our latest donation and couldn't resist stopping in to see some puppies. Here's the one who stole our heart. His name is Sage and he arrived with some severe trauma to his right eye and had to lose it. But he doesn't show any sign of it affecting him and was a fountain of kisses. At the time of this post, he's still available for adoption. And if I weren't leaving the country for three months, I think I might be taking him, as my new dog, for a walk right now.
It was in the Mission. They looked delicious. What would've happened if they'd been paired with these breadpigs? We'll never know...
This plane went out last night from LAX. Filled with more reddit-funded aid supplies for Haiti. The total is now $112,846.41 raised by reddit (and growing). I'm running out of adjectives to describe how awesome this is.
The response from reddit has been nothing short of awesome. We blew away the original goal of $31,415 in five hours. And now we're not far away from our second goal of twice that ($62,830). All of the donations -- every penny -- are going toward helping Haitians thanks to a partnership with Direct Relief.
