The environmental disasters devastating our families, friends, and colleagues right now are overwhelming. Puerto Rico has been destroyed by hurricane Maria, and Houston is still facing a long road to recover. As a first step we have identified a few organizations accepting donations. Beyond donations we want to hear from you! If you have suggestions, comments and ideas please add more in the comment section!
Donate to those affected in the US by the hurricanes this season. All Hands Volunteers is a good one.
The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is offering small grants to aid scientists and students hit by Hurricane Harvey. Help spread the word! And/or encourage a different scientific organization to set up a similar fund!
