|Doing something good.
||[Nov. 28th, 2008|12:16 am]
I know we're all stressed out about the financial crisis. So many people are out there getting their homes repossessed that it stops meaning anything to you but a bunch of statistics. However sometimes you see something that makes it real, and you realise that you CAN do something to help. So you do. And it feels good.
This family is about to lose their home. Their friend is asking for $1 contributions to raise $10,000 before December the 8th, and they are almost a third of the way there. I think they can get there, and this is my lame attempt to pass that hope on. Maybe it is some ridiculously elaborate scam, although my gut doesn't think so, but what the hell, If I've got 20 bucks to spend on pixels, I have 20 bucks to spend on helping someone keep their home, especially this close to Christmas.
