Southern Poverty Law Center

Made a donation to the Southern Poverty Law Center to help with JUSTICE.
I often fight for justice, I feel I should use my voice and strength to help people who don't have it.

Still bringing in snacks

I bring soups to the local veterans hospital volunteers. I try to keep the office stacked with food, so that if a vet is hungry they have something instead of stealing from the store. Been doing this for many years now, and have kept a lot of people out of jail.

Costs me about $25/month and 5 minutes of my time. Good ROI.

Made a Kiva loan to a Julia in Columbia.

Julia has a small workshop located in the southwestern area of the city, where she makes cloth handbags, straps, cosmetic bags, small wallets, and sports caps. She learned the trade from her sister, who is also in this line of work.
Julia sells directly to her customers, who are coworkers, neighbors, and people referred to her by these buyers. She makes her purchases in cash at establishments specializing in sewing supplies and charges her customers 50% cash and 50% credit. She works Monday through Sunday in the afternoons, since she also generates income as a housekeeper.
She currently wants to increase her amount of products and, in order to do so, she needs a semi-industrial flat sewing machine, which will allow her to obtain a better finishing on her products. She will also purchase raw materials and supplies. She will buy fabric, accessories such as sliding buckles, thread, and buttons. Her investment will allow her to increase her sales volume and obtain better income, which is precisely her goal for this Kiva loan.

Been a long time

As you can tell, my blogging got worse till non-existent. I'm still doing lots of things to change the world, I'm just not posting them.  It was making me feel guilty, so I had to stop for a bit.  Now I will try to just do real posts when I can and want to, perhaps not daily.  Perhaps I will go back again.  Always hard to tell the future.

I just made my 1488 Kiva loan.
