People might diss facebook, but I do find out some interesting things from some of my friends' posts.
Today, for example, I see in the news feed that Sandy has joined CompassionArt, so I have a look at what CompassionArt is and decide that I will also join their facebook group. I've also gone to their website, and have added a link to it on this page - here or on the sidebar.
What an excellent idea, to use the arts to raise awareness, financial support, and compassion for the people who are our neighbours in this world who are struggling with poverty.
The campaigns encouraging people to give something up in order to stand beside those less fortunate than us in solidarity look great too, challenging, confronting, and compassionate.
Check it out.
