Blog Action Day (belated)
After seeing posts about Blog Action day on Crazy for Fiber and on Mouse Medicine, I've done some research and wish I'd known about it earlier. Not that it is too late, but I would have posted earlier about the movement. I recently contributed to First Book and do believe that providing books to children of low income families is a worthwhile cause. My brothers and I have contributed to the our local Community Foundation in honor of our parents. I will be looking locally for more opportunities to help-- as our area, like Kim's, has a high percentage of the population that fall below the poverty line.
In these difficult economic times, it is important to remember that those in the lowest income brackets hurt in ways we can't always imagine. Our family may cut back in many
areas, but we won't be worried about paying our bills or putting food on the table.
