Normally, I give the number of total allied servicemembers killed as tallied by iCasualties.org, one of the few organizations dedicated to not forgetting the sacrifices by our military. However, iCasualties.org's servers have crashed and they are seeking donations to defray the cost of new equipment. Iraq Body Count lists 69 Iraqi civilian deaths for this week; 537 deaths (including 21 children) for the entire month of August.

Can you help us out?
