Ortho_cat - for future reference you need to provide a description when you place a link in a post, rather than leaving it a "naked" link.

In this case, I'll help: FOCUS North America is an Orthodox organization that strives to get people involved in local charity through volunteering their time and effort (rather than fundraising as others do - there are plenty who focus on this aspect and they are well-established and good at it).
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

Don't fret - that wasn't a scolding, just a FYI!

A guest priest at my parish runs this group.
