You CAN Make a difference Sep 17, 2006
While this book is catagorized as Religious/Social Action - I've become wary of anything that is considered "religious".
While this book offers many good ideas for making a difference in the lives of others, some are better than others. I have learned to glean what I can which agrees with my own faith - and let the others go.
Some of the great ideas I got from this were:
Afghans for Afghans: Knitting items for needy folks in war-torn Afghanistan. What a great way to 'multi-task'. While traveling or enjoying a movie, my knitting needles are flying for a cause. [...]
Waste Not, Mail Not: Remove yourself from all those pesky unsolicited mailing lists and save trees in the mean time. [...]
Would you give someone the shirt off your back... SURE YOU WOULD! Donate your good business clothes and shoes to low income women entering the workforce. This was great for me as I retired this year! [...]
Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy: 23 million Americans go to be hungry each night! For kids that can mean stunted growth, learning disabilities and depressed immunity. Add this reflection to grace at family meals and remind your kids to help themselves to only that which they can eat. Keep a 'hunger piggy' bank on the table and encourage everyone to add their spare change at the end of the day. Donate the contents once a month to a local food shelter.
pg. 94: So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all. Galatians 6:10
