Everybody knows I hate Federal stealing also called “Redestribution”. I am a firm believer of the old days where families, friends and neighbors helped eachother out within the community. This is the way it should be and not Robin Hood Taxes and Redistribution.
That is why I am double proud to support this cause:
People in your community are cold and hungry. You might not see them on the streets in your community but they are there. Or you may live in a community where it’s more than obvious (Hello, Seattle, Los Angeles, Detroit…). Maggie Keenan (@MaggieKeenan –twitter) and Lisa Manyon (@WriteOnCreative –twitter) are no strangers to giving. They’re challenging you to do the same. So, donate a blanket or food to someone who needs it. Perhaps someone you see on the street or contact your local giving agencies. There are Community Partnership Act programs across the country, homeless shelters and food banks, too. Or, if you cannot donate an item, donate your time to a local soup kitchen. Let’s make a difference. Let’s put any judgments aside & give unconditionally.
The Help Starts @ Home movement was inspired by the social media craze of women posting their bra color to support breast cancer. Maggie & Lisa support breast cancer too BUT they’re taking this a step further and challenging you and your family to take action and make a difference. After all, we don’t really see the public officials doing much.
Help really does start at home and no one should be cold or hungry. Post this to your Facebook wall, pass it on to friends, add it to your blog, send it to your newsletter subscribers & when you’ve taken action, post this in your status on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook or whatever social media platform you choose.
Think of the impact we can ALL make. Oh, and if you really cannot find the time to take action and donate a blanket or food, please consider sending a donation to the The Little Red Wagon Foundation. Zach Bonner (@Zach_Bonner – Twitter) is the founder. He’s 12-Years old and dedicated to helping homeless children. Check him out on Twitter or at http://littleredwagonfoundation.com/ .
Now go forth and GIVE. And, when you do, add our Twibbon to your Twitter profile (thanks @ShelbyCollinge telling us about Twibbons) or add this post to your Facebook wall to show united support for Help Starts @ Home.
