Blog-a-thon to Help End World Hunger

This Christmas season I've decided to try to use my blog to raise some money to help end world hunger through Heifer International. You can take the peace & justice advocate out of action, but you can't take the action out of the peace & justice advocate (or however that goes). This is something small I can do from the Novitiate.

The idea is simple ... it's like a blog-a-thon (as opposed to a read-a-thon). If my bloggy friends (and real life family & friends) can pitch in a small amount, I'm sure we'll reach my goal of raising $500 in no time. Any donation large or small will help us get there!

I chose Heifer International to help because they are a wonderful organization working to end hunger and poverty in the world. For more than six decades, Heifer has been helping poor families around the world become self-reliant by providing animals and the training to care for them. Each recipient family promises to pass along offspring from their animal to another family in need.

Heifer's simple but effective solution has helped more than seven million families -- 38 million people -- in more than 125 countries including the US, where more than 10 million people are chronically hungry.

Thanks in advance for indulging me. If you can help out, thanks!

Blessings of Peace,

I'll pledge $50 to put you over the top. Can I give you the money the next time I see you? I don't have a credit card.

Peace during these last days of Advent!
