For the past several years my good friend Dprjones has organized a charity event for Doctors Without Borders. All the money raised goes towards providing free medical care to the poor and refugees, often innocent victims of war. I have worked in the background doing whatever Dprjones asked of me. Sadly this year I do not have a YouTube account to promote the event with but I do have this blog. So here is all the info you will need.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971.
Today, MSF provides independent, impartial assistance in more than 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need. MSF also reserves the right to speak out to bring attention to neglected crises, challenge inadequacies or abuse of the aid system, and to advocate for improved medical treatments and protocols.
