Be the miracle

December 1, 2006



RedemptionSince today is World AIDS Day, I thought it appropriate to quit putting off something I’ve been meaning to do for weeks: I went over to Mike Todd’s blog and clicked the “Make a Donation” button he has in the right column, to support his effort to get 1000 people to join together to donate $10 to support AIDS relief in Africa.

Why $10? Because that’s the same amount you would be giving, through Apple, if you bought a red iPod.

Now a number of people at work have expressed interest in getting a red iPod because it’s so cool-looking. That’s fine. How about you, dear reader? I bet there are a couple of you out there who have, or will, get a red iPod. A couple of you. I mean, it’s still pricey.

But I know that all of you can afford $10. Heck, it’s even less than that because it’s Canadian funny money; I paid 8.96 USD. Can you afford that much to help the Stephen Lewis Foundation help the lives of HIV/AIDS sufferers on the great continent of Africa?

Can you afford not to?

Here’s what I want you to do. Three steps.
1) Read Mike’s entry on his (RED)EMPTION campaign.
2) Click on his “Make a Donation” button. It’s not much. Just do it.
3) Pass it on. If you blog, blog it.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  2. $10 – It’s not much.

    Jon pointed out in the comments of my last post that there’s a way for each of us to make a substantive difference today.
