MLK Day: Any Charitable Action in Albuquerque?

According to this article, Washington—and the entire nation—is using today to take action. U.S. citizens are impoverished, Haiti is destroyed, and so the day of remembrance has become a day of charitable work.

Is anything happening in Albuquerque? I looked around. There was the annual parade yesterday. Maybe there are some awesome charitable events coming up that I haven’t heard about. If there are, post info about them as comments here. We’d love to know.

In the meantime, text text “Yele” to 501501 to contribute $5 to the relief effort. (Yele is Haitian-born hip-hop star Wyclef Jean’s charity.) Or text "Haiti" to 90999 to kick $10 to the Red Cross. Donations are added to your cell phone bill.
