I joined this absolutely amazing website late last night, and I urge anyone who reads this to join as well. Here it is: http://www.29gifts.org/.
The idea is elegantly simple. Give 29 gifts in 29 days. Bless your own life as you bless others. Thanks to Hope, in whose blog I found this wonderful campaign: http://hopeclark.blogspot.com/2008/10/29-gifts.html
October is breast cancer awareness month, and I've chosen to send my first gift to Elysia Skye, who has been denied (bless those HMO's) funding for surgery she needs, saying it is 'experimental'. Read her story here: http://www.elysiaskye.org/ and then donate :)
