YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOO!!

When I encourage you to keep a low profile and take care of yourself, I am not discouraging your helping others. I believe in self-first, not self-ish!

A recent Time Magazine article called POWER OF ONE (2/15/10)described a man who witnessed aid workers in 1999 throwing bread on the floor for people caught in a crisis. He was offended by those images off people fighting for the bread and decided to do something about it. He invented a survivor's kit that included a ten person tent,blankets, pans,a stove, water, food,crayons and coloring books, etc.

He approached his local Rotary Club with the idea.Since '01 they have raised enough money to send 75,000 boxes to more than 100 disaster zones. By January 30th they sent 5000 boxes to Haiti. This is a nice story about people helping people.

Each of us has the power to help others less fortunate than ourselves. Hopefully, we can find a way to use it generously and caringly.

Bye For Now,

Bill
