I struggle with lots of things.
How to be a good parent.
How to get healthy.
How to get organized.
How to make a difference in this world.
How to do good for others.
And I recently read a book that made a difference to ME.
And the same person who wrote that book and has made such a huge impact in kids' lives in rural Pakistan and Afghanistan has also started a program called Pennies for Peace.
By participating in Pennies for Peace we can make a positive impact on a global scale, one penny at a time. While a penny is virtually worthless, in impoverished countries a penny buys a pencil and opens the door to literacy.
We can join Pennies for Peace and give lasting hope to children half a world away!
The website for Pennies for Peace offers a free downloadable toolkit to help start the program.
I don't know about you, but I'm thinking of letting my sons' teachers know about it so they can do it at school...and I may try to start it at work, so I can feel like I'm making a difference somewhere, somehow.
That is SO important to me.
