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).
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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