What You Can.

I remember growing up as a kid and hearing things like “If we keep cutting down the rainforests, then we won’t have any clean air.” A lot of if we do this then that will happens.

What happens when the then‘s have arrived and gone and we are left with nothing. What next?

Incredible video. I cannot share it with a dry eye and without a feeling of outrage and disgust. I am as mad at myself as anyone. We all enjoy the conveniences of this life and are just as guilty as the ones doing the logging that destroyed their canopy, their home. As guilty as the ones who are still logging somewhere out there in the rest of the world.

So what do you do?

What you can.

You recycle more. You research more ways to be sustainable. You encourage others to do the same. You teach your kids. And you pray a lot. My family and I are supporters of charity:water and their campaigns. We wear the wristbands and we give them out. We tell people about them. It is such a simple thing to do.

Join and start a campaign.

Buy wristbands, wear them, gift them to friends.

Spread the word.

Our birthdays aren’t in September, but does that really matter? No. Every day, any day, is a day you can help someone.
