This is my response to Tony Berkman’s latest BrooWaha Post:
“Our Giving Makes Us Rich” Catherine Ponder
Sharing what we have is like purchasing insurance. It doesn’t mean nothing bad will never come our way, but it does level the playing field.
When we share, donate or give to others, by this very act we prove that we are rich enough to share our portion. Giving to help another will not deplete your resources. Because when we all chip in and help, WE Make A Huge Difference!
I feel guilty when I eat a wonderful meal and my mind plants the face of a child in my head, a child who has insufficient food, water, shelter, protection or love. The only way I keep my sanity is with the knowledge that I give on a constant basis. Every week. I tithe. I donate. I purchase insurance and I send care out into the world with the money I earn. When combined with others’ gifts, WE Make A Difference!
No one person or government can do this alone. It is when we come together to insist upon a change that WE Make A Difference!
I stand with Tony and urge you to sign-up today at BloggersUnite.org and take a little time to show your concern for our fellow man. Make our voices stronger. Donate and share.
One day it could be you, or I, who needs assistance. Think on it. Doctors Without Borders is a worthy organization. They are heros.
