The Good Cause

| |

When I first started noticing blogs I saw it as an interesting way to express oneself. Not necessarily to anyone in particular either. A lot of blogs I came across were for the purpose of self-expression, or a way to ventilate one’s opinions on a particular topic or two that’s crossed their mind.

I started this blog as a way to put down my feelings about taking on the next milestone in life. What was a journal and hobby has become a true joy an treasure. But what’s better… I’ve met some of the most amazing people though blogging which I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to come across otherwise.

I’m a journalist. And one of the things I pride myself in is doing stories that help and inspire people. Stories that move people to action. It’s not me, but the people I meet and interview… The people in my stories that bring about the greater good in the world.

Just recently I’ve started to realize that same movement is visible… If not more so in the blogging realm. Never have I crossed paths with so many inspiration people trying to do good in such a short time span.

One example of this is with Danielle, the woman who re-designed my blog. She’s offering her design services for free to a lucky donor who gives toward helping starving children in China.

You see… Due to limited resources, many government orphanages in China can’t afford to purchase formula powder. Instead, babies are given substitutes like sugar water or rice powder to ease their hunger pains. As many of you mothers know, these substitutes do not provide the nutrition a child needs, and the result is malnourishment, sickness, and underdevelopment.

I won’t go into all of the details but I hope you’ll consider going over here and donate what you can, no matter how small. One hundred percent of the money goes toward the New Day Foster Home’s Formula Project! I’m going to give up one fast-food meal this week so I can chip in!… It’ll be good for me, and these children. And hey… Your contribution could also get you a new free blog design!

Is it just me, or does like just seem so inspiring at times? I’ve always been a believer in the fact that people are good. And sometimes running into little things like this just go to show that! What other blogs/ people/ things inspire you? I love inspiration!!

  1. Thanks for posting this! I just happened to click on your blog from another one, and I was surprised to see a baby I knew on your blog post! I work at the foster home, and we’re so thankful for all the efforts of Danielle and others to spread the work about our work!

  2. I will definately hop over and contribute, thanks for the notice! My daughter was raised for the first year of her life on sugar water and when we adopted her from China at 13 months she only weighed 13 lbs. By the time we got her home she had already gained 5 lbs. just by getting real formula. A great thing she is doing. Pura Vida!

  3. Cory takes the MCAT in 2 weeks!!! I can’t believe it. It is coming so fast, I am actually starting to get really excited for medical school, not so much scared anymore! But we will see! Cory says there are some really, really great medical schools in Texas so we shall see… !!! But by the time we get there you will probably be in Atlanta πŸ™‚

    Today has been awesome. As of yesterday, we had raised $20. Today — $95, AND someone paid for a year of formula sponsorship!!! How awesome is THAT!?
