Aid Watch goes Lite for August

Since many of you downshift for August and we do also, Aid Watch will be posting shorter, less frequent blog posts this month, perhaps some with more entertainment value than substance. You can participate by submitting entries in a category we will have this month: Weirdest Aid Stories Ever. Please send them to

Meanwhile, you still have a chance to participate in our Reader Survey, if you have not already, to give us feedback on how we can make Aid Watch better. The survey closes at 5pm today, Eastern Daylight Time. We will post the results soon.
