Because I'm participating in the A to Z Poetry Challenge, my daily posts have been poems and have served double duty for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. We have Sundays off at the Poetry Challenge, so I'm free to post about anything I'd like. I've run across several worthy causes recently so I thought I'd share them and hopefully help increase participation and donations! Here they are, in no particular order:
1 - We Give Books:
"We Give Books is a free website that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don't have them, simply by reading online.
Simply choose the charity you want to read for and then select the books you want to read. For each book you read online, we donate a book to a leading literacy group on your behalf."
How great is that?
I'll let them explain it - why reinvent the wheel?
Can you imagine not having clean water? We take so many things like that for granted - we're very lucky!!
3 - Alexandra Blaszczuk:
Although this is for just one person, I have to share it. Alexandra Blaszczuk was a 2005 graduate of Stevenson High School, where I work two days a week. Last fall, while Alexandra was a student at Columbia University Law School, she was injured in a car accident and is now a quadriplegic! She wants to finish law school and then practice law, so they've started a trust to raise money to help with her expenses. I watched the videos and was so impressed by Alexandra - I know you will be too!
I dare you to watch them and not feel moved to help her!
If you find any of these causes worthy, please forward them on to your friends and families - thanks!
