What Can I Do To Help

A Sudbury man named Barry Katz lost his wife to a four year fight with ovarian cancer. Throughout the ordeal, he and his family were bombarded with the question "What can I do to help?" They were often too shell shocked to figure out how to put all these helpers to use. Mr. Katz has used his family's loss and his knowledge of technology to create Lotsa Helping Hands. The site is simple, elegant, and brilliant. It's a low cost mechanism to organize a group of people to a common cause. Create a calendar that lets people know what meals are needed and when? No problem! The site allows for issues such as dietary restrictions and task reassignment to be handled. Spread the word if you can.
