And now for your daily guilt trip...

Please check out this Dateline story about the garments industry in Bangladesh.

Then donate money to Kathy Ward, who is running an NGO to help garment workers find better jobs with better pay and better working conditions. Or, if you can't donate, tell everyone you know about it.

I'm not advocating boycotting the big discount chains, but I think it's good to be aware of the situation. The women that I worked with - people whom I am proud to call my friends - are directly affected by the activities of greedy corporations looking for a cheaper rate. It's just good to know.
