  •  At my UU church, each member was given $10 (12+ / 0-)

    to invest in making this a better world. Our family has been going round and round on what to do with it -- we all want something that will be more than just giving to Red Cross (no disrespect intended...) I'd like to find something where the $10 is seeding something greater.

    I've hotlinked this diary so I can present all of these organizations to my family. As soon as I read the first vignette, I was sure I found our cause -- and then I read Joshua's story...

    The best part of this UU program is that we get to present our story to the congregation. I may donate $10 to each of these org (one per family member) so that I share all of them with my fellow UUs.

    Wonderful!

    •  What a wonderful concept from your church. (10+ / 0-)

      It really makes you focus on the many needs and worthy causes.  I cannot think of a better way to expose children to the reality of what others face in our country and communities.  

      Heh.  Joshua's story will tug at the heartstrings and what a beautiful smiling face!

      Thank you, Kgirls for telling us about your church's program and for considering donating to one or more of these great causes.

      As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
