Gentle New Year’s Resolution #2

Hey, thanks everyone who commented with such positivity on the Gentle New Year’s Rez #1. Walking is an underrated exercise I completely advocate and love. In fact, I hope sincerely that some day our streets will be full of pedestrians, not cars.

Oh, and thanks for all the support on my bogus Kalga Cafe experience, by the way. I did have one guy write me and use lots of expletives and tell me to get over myself, and well, though I contemplated leaving the comment up, it was sort of mean and angry, and frankly, I think I may have got in trouble for leaving up such hateful spite, and like I said, he sweared a lot, so I took it down. But anyone is interested, I’ll email them privately if they want to read what he had to say to me…

Anyway, ok, I know it’s January 10th, and really, I know there’s this big movement to make New Year’s Resolutions on New Year’s Eve. But me, I’m more of the Gentle Introductions of New Year’s Resolutions as the Month of January Rolls Along, so bear with me, ok? After all, resolutions are not things that just happen overnight. Resolutions take committment and perserverance. Resolutions are promises to ones’self to make long-lasting postiive change to one’s life and the world around us.

So you want to do something good. You want to volunteer your time, feed the hungry, preserve endangered land, give underpriveleged women an opportunity for a mamogram. I’m telling you, you can do a little bit everyday, and it’s easy and fun.

The Hunger Site
donates, depending on clicks, an average of 164, 000 cups per day of staple food for the hungry in the US and around the world every day. n 1999, a year marked by good economic news, 31 million Americans were food insecure, meaning they were either hungry or unsure of where their next meal would come from. Of these Americans, 12 million were children. The Hunger Site began on June 1, 1999.

The Rainforest Site protected approximately 1,015,000 feet of land every day.

The Breast Cancer Site funds at leat 5,900 mamograms (approximately 5.7 per day) to underprivilegded women in the United States througout the year. According to the Breast Cancer Site, “Your click on the “Fund Free Mammograms” button helps fund free mammograms, paid for by site sponsors whose ads appear after you click and provided to women in need through the efforts of the National Breast Cancer Foundation to low-income, inner-city and minority women, whose awareness of breast cancer and opportunity for help is often limited.”

Click everyday!! Every click counts!
