I mentioned a while ago that we are supporting the 12 for 12K Challenge, a charitable campaign launched through social media. Each month in 2009, a new charity will be selected, and we are asking you to consider a small donation ($10, but feel free to give more if the spirit moves you).
The first charity, for January 2009, is War Child. Why? There is a good piece where Danny Brown puts the value of $10 in perspective.
Here is a quick overview of the War Child Charity:
…and below is a video of Little Lady and Little Sister protesting against poverty. In truth, they did this 100% spontaneously the first time, but I did not have a camera handy then. So this is actually a “re-enactment” video. Note that the banner reading “PlYSE” is supposed to read “Please” (not bad for a 7-year old learning to write in French), as in PlYSE support the 12 for 12K Challenge.
I’ve just sent my $10 donation; why not send yours now?
