At this time of the year we (and retailers particularly) may be too busy to reflect long enough about how fortunate we are. This is more than soppy sentimentality.
Like everyone else I suffer from donor fatigue. But that does not give us the right to switch off and turn away from our obligations to make the world a better place.
Some food for thought:
Go and spin the wheel here.
Yes, it is brilliant marketing. But more importantly, you may think differently about your station in life.
I hope it does.
We have been long term supporters of KIVA – where you can donate money to third-world entrepreneurs who pay it all back, and then you can donate the same money again. If you haven’t tried it yet, please join us there.
This is probably the last post for 2010.
May your festive season be blessed by God and may you experience the joy of family and loved ones sharing a special moment in time.
