Pie In The Face!!

While it is late, consider this your Christmas gift.  :-)  Thank you so much for donating to John Wright's Pie in the Face Challenge.  There are so many children who will know that someone cares about them, and who will have a special Christmas thanks to your generosity.  There is no way for you to understand what your monetary gifts will do...they will bring hope...they will bring smiles...most importantly they will remind children that they are not forgotten and that they are loved.  The kind of poverty faced in Kyrgyzstan is beyond our understanding.  You nor I can fathom what it is like to wish that maybe you will have a job that will earn you enough money so that you can actually have rice to eat every day.  Nothing else, just rice.  Or that you might just be able to have coal for heat this winter instead of freezing near to death for months on end.  For the children who are institutionalized in Kyrgyzstan's orphanages, there is never enough food for tummies to feel full, never decent clothing, never enough medical care.  They ARE abandoned, alone and forgotten.

Except for the fact that they are not forgotten by any of us, not by you, and not by our family.  John and his family will soon be over in Kyrgyzstan for a quick trip to take part in all the Christmas celebrations that your help has brought about.  If you find that you desire to help in some other way, please contact John over at www.actofkindness,blogspot.com and offer even another small monetary donation for heat for a senior, for rice for a hungry tummy, or maybe to make a small dream come true for someone.  It doesn't take much, and I promise you having met John and been associated with him  for years now, he and his family are the "real deal".  What you give is always used for the stated purpose, you will receive photos so you will feel more a part of your giving, and John will communicate with you to let you know more if you so wish.  Direct giving is what it is, and the results are incredible.

Now, for the Main Event...here is the video!:

Hello, Adulthood...But Not Goodbye, Childhood

During these waning days of summer, new adults are slowly blossoming and, for one, childhood is very gradually beginning its tentative wave...
