PUTTING ACTION TO THE SOCIAL ISSUE TALK

It seems that everyone who is part of amandla has concern for social issues by the way we talk. Now let's put "action to the passion." As you all should know, there was a horrific tsunami that has devastated Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Bhutan, Bangladesh, India, and Somalia. Death tolls are climbing into the 40,000s and this disaster is being called the costliest disaster ever. Talk of possible epidemic outbreak is arising.

Being "socially concious" is about a way one lives and contributes, not the way one thinks or talks.

I am challenging each one of you to donate at least $20 to the Red Cross towards relief. All you have to do is go to redcross.org and click on donate on the lift side of the screen. Prove to yourself that you're not ruled by money by giving it away, even if you feel you can't give the $20.

Don't let this event be a news story. Let it be a reality that you deal with and make a contribution to.

T Diddy-

What about maybe gathering donations for the disaster this week at church? Just a thought. And possibbly spending some serious time toether in prayer on the part of those who are suffering there.
