We all know what’s going on in Egypt, and various other parts of the world. There isn’t too much for us to be done there, but here’s something that you can be proactive about, and it’s so easy. I first heard about Pastor Marrion some time this past summer – I want to say ~July? From Megan F. I’ve been tweeting about it, but it’s high time it was made concrete. (Twitter can be so transient…) In this case, I don’t really think what religion you are, if any, should play a part. Maybe because he’s Pastor Marrion you find it off putting. Get over it.
Why does this only have 445 views? I want to cry.
Pastor Marrion P’Udongo has been called the “Oskar Schindler” of Congo, a man who’s dedicated himself to saving and nurturing the lives of others in one of the world’s most deadliest wars.
You can read more about the fund and Pastor Marrion and also donate if you wish here. (And I hope you will.)
As for something easily done, Shiloh Walker is an amazingly generous person, and she’s doing a fundraiser of sorts, where if she gets 400 comments, she’ll donate an additional $400. All you have to do is comment – it doesn’t cost a thing. If you’re interested in donating, she’s also having a contest.
In your lifetime, there are few moments when you’re given the opportunity to directly save another person’s life.-Bryan Mealer, HuffPo
If you had a chance to save somebody’s life, and it didn’t take all that much… would you do it? Well, here’s that chance.
Check out Shiloh Walker’s blog for a chance to read how you can help save a man’s life…
And a thank you message – this man is ill, and has done so much to help the world… people like him should be helped in return.
*ETA: I’m not much help monetarily – although I’m doing what I can – but I’m also in the process of contacting people about places in Johannesburg. So did you comment? Going to help the cause?
**Double ETA: The winners have been chosen by randomizer.org! They are: Liza, Bella F, and Mary Froelich.
Liza and Mary, you both get a copy of All Night with a Rogue, and Bella, you get a copy of After Dark with a Scoundrel. You have until Tuesday to send me your info [mailing address etc]. And of course there’s the handy dandy contact form for these occasions.
Ah yes- and because I felt like it… I also gave StacieDM a kindle copy of Eternity Embraced by Larissa Ione. Why? Because randomizer.org chose her from people who comment on my blog. See? Being a regular has its benefits 😉
I did comment on Shiloh’s blog. I hope all of the little contributions add up to helping this man.
