Thought of the Day 2010 #57 - Don't Donate Overseas

That's what one of my Facebook friend's status said. The reasoning was
that there are plenty of people who need money in the US. Basically a
"take care of your own" concept.
While I agree there is plenty of need in the US, countries like Haiti
don't have a lot of other options. They were a struggling country before
the recent devastation.

Also, while those people in other countries fly under another flag, we
are all on one planet and despite what some might believe, what happens
in other countries *does* affect us.

"No man is an island...," even if they are physically on another island.


Take care of our own *and* reach deep into your cash reserves to aid
others on this planet. You'll be glad you did.

This is a very good point Cat. I agree 100 percent! Thanks for reminding us that we are one world, one planet.
