September is almost over. Whaaaaaaaaaat?! I’ve been sitting here watching reruns of Crossing Jordan instead of doing what’s important. LAME. Time to be awesome, right now, so I’m listing this month’s round of donations – to be contributed as soon as I pay my rent tomorrow.
My main contribution will be to Save the Children and UNHCR for the work they are doing in Syria. I am not going to sit by and do nothing while an entire generation of children grows up in areas all over the world where they have never known peace. I believe in what Marianne Williamson says when she tells us that “not doing harm” is not good enough. There is no neutral in this world – you’re either creating a new paradigm for the planet or contributing to it’s current state of decline.
I backed the movie Me + You on Kickstarter, because I don’t think anyone benefits from stereotypes, and there are a lot of them in tv and movies. Watch this lady kick some booty and make a movie.
After I posted my August Donations, I was very touched to receive an email from a supporter of Eat, Recycle, Repeat. She introduced me to her foundation, the Andrew James Cherpak III Memorial Foundation. I checked out their website and was very impressed by the foundation’s commitment to kindness and education. In their own words:
The Andrew James Cherpak III Memorial Foundation, Inc. was established in 2010 to keep Andrew’s legacy of helping others, pursuance of advanced education in the field of law, and amazing spirit alive by granting scholarships and sponsorships to those in need. Despite numerous challenges in Andrew’s life, he repeatedly maintained an extraordinarily positive attitude and never stopped grasping for the stars.
Also, I’m continuing my 21 Day Kindness Challenge and reaping all sorts of benefits from it. You don’t have to have money to do good in the world!
Love you guys – thanks for being here! I’d give you some of the Sweet Potato Bread I baked this morning, but it’s about an inch thick and green because the baking soda reacted with the sunflower butter. I’ll keep working on recipe development this week. Ttfn!
