So, here is my posting for the Bloggers Unite in Acts of Kindness Day. The idea folks, was that all bloggers unite today and post our ideas or causes for an "Act of Kindness" today.
My idea was to post as many different causes that I care about so that you could choose at least one to make a donation to. I thought further about it. Why not instead of the normal toxic lead poisoned toys/crappy gift card (that is still sitting at the bottom of my purse a whole year later because I DON'T SHOP AT THAT STORE, GRANDMA!) give the gift of caring about others. AND DONATE IT IN THE NAME OF SOMEONE YOU LOVE THIS HOLIDAY!!! So, inside your Christmas Card to the person, write your donation information to one of the causes mentioned below IN THEIR HONOR.
I have had many members of my family die from various forms of cancer. I support personally starving AIDS babies in Africa. I thought about the Crisis in Darfur. What about our Climate Crises? Mental Illness, I could go on and on, literally. So, I am adding many links in hopes you would be participating in the Bloggers Unite Cause for the LRWB's Blogpage.
NOW, ALTHOUGH THIS WAS MEANT TO BE A ONE DAY EVENT, I WILL BE LEAVING THIS BLOG ENTRY UP FOR GOOD SO THAT YOU CAN ALWAYS RETURN, NOT JUST FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON, BUT THROUGHOUT THE YEAR FOR BIRTHDAYS AND MORE:
Please donate whatever, or as much as, you can to the cause of YOUR choice:
**American Cancer Society:
**Feed the Children/Frances Jones Abandoned Baby Center
(AIDS babies in Africa-I signed up for a monthly donation about a year ago-you can do as little as $9/mo. to feed and care for one baby in the center)
**Crisis in Darfur/ Save Darfur.Org:
**The Carter Center (They do multiple causes):
**Depression and Bipolar Alliance:
**TMJ Association [this is actually one of the 2 chronic pain conditions that I suffer from] Please look into what this condition is at The TMJ Association:
**One other cause that is personal to me is the National Fibromyalgia Association:
If there is a missing charity that you would like to add, please do so by leaving a comment.
Thank you for your kindness!! May you love yourself, your neighbors, and your planet even more tomorrow than you already do today.
