Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that has - MARGARET MEAD

My heart hurts. Not from sickness, but from the thought of all the things we can do to make a difference that we chose not to. That we chose to look the other way on, or pretend they don't happen in the background. Global warming, pet overpopulation, poverty, the food crisis...there are so many causes to get involved in and so many of us have so much to give...but don't.


Because we don't think it will make a difference.

Is that really the truth? Think about it. If everyone you know - not even everyone in the world, just everyone you know - gave a little bit, lets say even just one hour or $10 a week to a cause they believe in - what would that add up to?

Think about it.

Is it really that you don't think it will make a difference?

Or is it that you'd rather pretend things we don't like just aren't happening?

Please - I beg, I pray, I beseech you - do something, give something, anything, to a cause you believe in.

Just don't do nothing.

It is ALL of our responsibility. What are you going to do?

$ to loaves and fishes, and south county food bank. They need help year round, not just at the holidays. Oh, heck, might as well give some to generous hands and help them get ready for back to school! I feel better, thanks!
