There's a lot of religious holidays converging this weekend, this year, and if you are observing one I hope all goes well with your observations. I'd like to take this opportunity to reiterate a saying I hold dear: Vasudhaiva Kutumbukam
. The whole universe is one family.
In a spirt of agape
, and heralding of a new year with with the spring, please take some time this weekend to consider the following opportunities:
Feeding the hungry. Please consider donating to Oxfam
, the World Food Programme
, or Food for Life
to feed the hungry, volunteering with Food Not Bombs
or Project Open Hand
, or, if you're in college, participating in this year's Collegiate Click Drive
. (Collegiate Click Drive was started by my friend Ben Brandzel.) You might also want to see if you can get your weekend shopping done at gear that gives
Sheltering the homeless: Please consider donating to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
, the United Nations High Commission on Refugees
, or Habitat for Humanity.
Educating the young: Please consider supporting Asha
, which does stellar work to educate children in India.
Today is the full moon of the month of Phalgun
