Update 10/16/2013: Sadly, this was canceled, as there were not enough people for the trip.
I have been afforded an amazing opportunity to help build a Habitat for Humanity home in Nicaragua, in early December. But I can’t do it alone, I need your help!
I don’t believe I really need to explain why Habitat is such an amazing and vital non-profit organization around the world. And in many of these places, we can build a home for less than $4,000.
Will you consider sponsoring me?
I will have a t-shirt made that I will wear at the build, featuring the names of all those who sponsor.
*You will only be charged if I reach my goal amount.
I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart, in advance.
Exactly one year ago, on this day, I made a solemn vow to never intentionally kill a living creature. I’ve kept that vow, except on two rare occasions where a knee-jerk reaction caused me to swat a fly that was making a meal out of me.
I’ve stopped others from killing many creatures, including spiders… and simply moved them instead. Even today I saved a spider.
While my actions may seem silly to most, and some don’t even give it a second thought to squashing a seemingly insignificant creature, I deeply believe all life has an infinite intrinsic value. And as such, I feel that in order to be the arbiters of the Earth that we claim to be, we should then be more mindful of even the simplest critters – yes, even spiders.
Apples vs oranges: it’s not really the same thing.
