In this life, in this big unforgiving world, I ask: What do you stand for? And again: What do you believe in? (Take just a moment.)
Are you thinking? Any answers?
I'm curious to know, because it matters. Really, it does.
Myself, I believe you can be the wishful change, whether grand or slight. In this world, I mean. It just requires heart.
A persistent voice doesn't hurt, either.
For example, I was moved to tears (go figure) at the kindness of a stranger who nobly stood this afternoon to join my cause. That's right, silly ol' me. I think I love her, too. Her heart, at least.
A woman with a voice, known simply to me as The Outspoken Introvert, made a $10 donation to this organization, and in doing so, bought five underprivileged children their first books. Five kids who deserve a chance in life, just the same as you and me.
It's crucial we educate our poor, and it starts with a book. So please consider donating today. Our tomorrow really depends on it.
With a pocketful of change, you can be the change.

(Two dollars buys one book.)
If you contribute, please leave a comment. If you don't, comment all the same. I'd love to know what you stand for.
Lastly (and I promise this is it), I write this blog to be heard. Yes, some out there may find it trivial. What with endless giveaways and seeming nonsense, but this post in particular is why I do it. We all need a platform for good, and this so happens to be my soapbox. I love that you're here. I love that you listen. Thanks for reading!
