Any particular cereal you need to rediscover?
Tonight, we have a "Lock-In" with our Jr/Sr High kids. Claire and I will be spending the night, locked in our church with a grip of 12-17 year olds. Pray for us. No really, we need it.
Have you seen this charity yet? (Found it through The Dish, a blog written by a baseball writer I like...he also writes about food and books.)
Global Giving...GlobalGiving is an online marketplace that connects you to the causes and countries you care about. You select the projects you want to support, make a tax-deductible contribution, and get regular progress updates - so you can see your impact.
An example of a project that was “so tiny, in fact, that it initially embarrassed” the site’s founder: a request for $5000 to build a separate toilet block for girls at a school in Coimbatore, India. They got the money and built the toilet block, and lo and behold, the dropout rate for girls who hit puberty dropped dramatically.
Seems like a pretty cool thing. Changing people's lives and you even get to see the tangible results. How often does that happen?
