Credit: Google – Go Fund Me for Samaritan’s Purse

Feed me, a child starving during last bell,

Give healthcare, no dirty water in the well.

For a coin, a donation receipt dealt.

I’ll help my family, the week will be swell.

Cloth me; I need not Prada, pearls from shells,

I’m suffering in an earthly hell.

So, do as God says, give to those who’ve less —

While you too flourish, and pamper yourselves.

There are parts of the earth — they’re called third-world,

Where baby’s stomach’s bloat, so malnourished.

Where disease’s rampant, and poverty’s a curse —

It’s not their fault, so halt your insults hurled.

Improve their lives; buy pencils, books for school.

Let no child ride the metaphorical Hearse.

Real Neat Blog Award

Thanks to Hook, Line, and Inkwell for nominating me for this award and since it is the holidays and I am relaxing I shall be  happy to accept it.

• Complete the task your nominator assigns.

• Nominate several bloggers—up to seven, if you like!

• Give them a challenge to complete, and share these rules.

The Task:

Complete one act of kindness (ie. donate something to the homeless or someone in need; help someone carry groceries; shovel a walk way for some one; volunteer somewhere; etc…) and write a post about the experience.

So, I chose to go with a monetary donation this time of year and made an extra donation to Operation Christmas Child from the Sanaritan’s Purse foundation. This charity has a special place in my heart as it provides presents to children in areas of the world where children hardly have the basics for daily life, never mind a Christmas present. For Operation Christmas child you can fill a box for a child of a certain age group and fill your box with school supplies, hard candies, a small stuffed toy or other kind of toy, hair accessories, etc. Operation child will deliver your box to a child in need. They also appreciate monetary donations and fill boxes themselves as well as use the money to support the charity. If you would like to donate to Operation Christmas child or any Samaritan’s purse cause you can go to the website here. Also, you can read about Samaritan’s Purse’s projects to help people in need.

You are all amazing bloggers who I have had the privilege to read and admire your writing. You make me think and make me laugh. You make me consider things in a different view point then  I usually perceive the world. So thank you so much.

I like Hook, Line, and Inkwells idea of performing an act of kindness, especially at this time of year. So your challenge should you accept is to perform one act of kindness and then write about it when you accept this award.
