FAHC, Smiles, and Other Great Causes

Feed A Hungry Child

I have had this draft on my dashboard for some time now; it was just a simple list and I figured I would post it when the holidays came around.
Then this week, along came dear Indira of Mahanandi with this post at Dining Hall. What a great chance to showcase a worthy cause!

my most fortunate child, with herΒ dinner

Wouldn’t it be amazing if every child could have a meal like this!?
Actually, why should it be amazing? Why shouldn’t it be commonplace?
Doesn’t every child *deserve* a meal like this!?

Simple meals that many of our kids take for granted are out of reach
for too many children the world over. Feed A Hungry Child, brainchild and champion cause of our own generous soul, VKN of My Dhaba,
seeks to change that.

Please help.

Hosted WordPress blogs like mine do not have a provision for the widget used by the folks at Feed A Hungry Child, so please click on the link below to read more about this wonderful venture.

I hope you will choose to make your donation there, as I did.

Their server is secure, and every cent contributed goes directly to feeding children in need.

Feed A Hungry Child

While we’re about it, here are a few more excellent causes to remember — now, as holiday gift-giving season rolls around, and all year long.

US Campaign for Burma

Asha For Education

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Asperger’s Syndrome

In my family we have often made a donation to the charity of one’s choice in lieu of exchanging gifts — this works for any occasion be it a birthday, Christmas, anniversary, or any other time.

Thanks to all who give a little of themselves, and thank you Indira and VKN for publicising this most worthy cause πŸ™‚

I was happily informed, by reading over at Nupur’s One Hot Stove, that today, October 15, is Blog Action Day. I am always learning something new at One Hot Stove!

Nupur has written a fantastic post with all sorts of examples of how we can be more enviornmentally conscious — from the places we choose to spend our money to the way we organize our fridge πŸ˜‰ I can eschew Walmart a lot easier than I can keep a fridge as neatly as Nupur keeps hers! I can’t say I have tons of environmental tips to offer. For my own private effort, I made a promise at New Year’s that I would try to avoid purchasing anything packaged in materials I cannot recycle — styrofoam and other non-recyclables are out — cardboard and plastic containers I can reuse are in. Thanks Nupur, for broadening my environmental horizons and sharing your ideas πŸ™‚
