DONATE TO CHARITY FOR FREE
are so many worthy causes in this world that few of us have
the time and energy to devote to most of them. This site
is one way to help many causes with only a few minutes time
a day. Click-To-Donate is a popular way to support your favorite
causes even if you don't have any extra money. By clicking
on your choices, sponsors will send that charity a donation.
I spend less then 5 minutes each morning (after checking
my email) clicking on about 25 different charities. Please
review this site and support some of the many very important
I encourage each of us to live a life based on peace. Especially
in today's world we are faced with war and hatred from many
directions. Let us work to create something more promising
for ourselves, our children, and the children yet to come.
Those who chose the way of peace do not have an easy path.
Despite many opinions to the contrary, the path of peace is
very hard and dangerous. Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi, and
John Lennon taught us that lesson while we mourned the loss
of these great men. There are great people today who fight
and speak for peace. Please visit my World & Inner
Peace page for links to some sites that talk of ways to
live in peace and encourage peace in others. Here are more
sites that dedicate themselves to peace in our world:

Each person born is unique with their own strengths and weaknesses.
We each have the potential of greatness within us; of creative
or destructive actions. As we go through our lives, the choices
we make - the actions we take, determine the kind of person
we show to others and the kind of person we ARE within ourselves.
To be judged by any other standard is senseless. The color
of your skin, the heritage of your family, even such things
as your religion (or lack of) or your economic condition do
not determine the value of your life. Each person is valuable
for who they have shown themselves to be in their lives, and
for who they can become.
In my lifetime I have supported causes for the rights of African-American's
who faced prejudices and violence every day. For women who
are still treated by some as inferior humans who lack intelligence
and value. For children who are abused, neglected, abandoned,
tortured, and used for vile acts of greed. For the disabled
who are passed over as if a ghost-in-reality; their skills
and feelings ignored, and even their bodies and life abandoned
by caregivers. For gays and lesbians who face loss of jobs,
housing, family, and even death by those that can't understand
that they have no choice in how they were created. All these
'causes' have a common thread: If you look at each individual
for who they ARE and not what classification they can be put
into, you'll find treasures everywhere. There is good and bad
in each of us. The choices we made day to day are what is important.
Earth is the only home we have. If we don't take care of her
then all other things are unimportant. Our 'progress' has taken
us to the brink of our own extinction. Without action the waters
and air will be so polluted that the planet will no longer
be able to support life. Learn all you can... AND TEACH
YOUR CHILDREN. Make an effort. Make a promise to yourself
to take steps to do your part to protect and clean our environment.

Concerns & AIDS
|We can search the
web and find stories and pictures from around the world showing
people, especially young children, starving, sick, malnourished,
dying. In African countries the AIDS epidemic is rampant with
9% of the population carrying the HIV virus. There is hunger
and malnutrition all over the world including in the United States.
The following organizations give more information on the problems
and offer some help and solutions. The Hunger Site is a pioneer
on the Internet who made the Click-To-Donate a popular way to
raise funds for charitable works. Please check out these sites,
learn and help where you can.
I mentioned to people that I was putting up a page about
various causes each person asked me if I had included 'this'
cause or 'that' cause. The truth is I would never finish
if I included all the worthy causes that need attention.
Spousal abuse, Saving the Rivers, Drug and Alcohol abuse,
Education, Economic oppression, Free Tibet... and it goes
on and on. I will add more over time so please send me what
you think needs attention. Either go to the Community
Forum or email me and
tell me the cause and perhaps a web site that you feel has
good information about your cause.
