Yesterday after months of putting it off, I finally cleaned my son Jacob’s room. He is a hoarder and loves to collect things, so You can just imagine what his room was like.
But as I was cleaning I started to think about how much we have…and Have To Have, but do we really need it? Do our kids need all the latest gear? Do we?
The answer is no.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Dior Mascara, I adore shoes, I love French Champagne! Does that make me a bad person, no, but it mean’s that I must be an ethically responsible person and share what I have.
So what can you and I do for our community and abroad?
Become a volunteer at a hospital
Sponsor a child (we sponser through Compassion Australia)
work in a soup kitchen
Walk Against Want
Donate to the salvos
Go through your cupboards and give any blankets etc to the Smith Family
If we all do just a little, big changes can occur! My “little” this year is the Oxfam 100km Trail Walker. We have our team called Smooth Metal and our goal is to raise awareness and money for the OxFam cause.
