World Poverty

I just read that half the population of the world, 3 billion poor souls, live on less than $2 per day.  We live a very frugal life, by American standards, and the two of us live on about $44 per day.  The next time I’m awake in my warm bed with food in my stomach worrying about the stock market tanking and the outrageous cost of gas, I’m going to remember those 3 billion souls and thank my lucky stars.

We have always given generously to causes we believe in and high on our list is world justice, which includes ending world hunger and providing a living wage for everyone.  We believe this would bring peace much quicker than starting and waging wars, but it wouldn’t fill the pockets of Halliburton, Cheney, etal.

Give what you can, when you can to make the world a better place.
