What if You Are Needed?

This is an interesting campaign.  It is a specific fundraising campaign in the struggle to raise money to help combat famine in the Horn of Africa.  But in the pursuit of it’s stated aim it asks a very interesting question.

Thanks to Make Wealth History where I first learned about this campaign – here is the relevant post – have a look – it raises some other interesting questions –

  1. Great post. It reminds us that we don’t need a cape and a mask to be a hero 😉 We can all be heroes everyday – if we choose to be.

  2. “because someone needs to be on the ground with you to help you up.”

    That sentence just blew me away! So incredibly powerful.

    Your posts always shake me up! That’s a good thing.

    Thank you!

  3. Actually, K – I was the same – that sentence really got to me as well – so we’re both shook up but in a good way. 🙂

  4. have you seen or heard of “lost children” it’s a non-profit company started by some filmmakers out of san diego attempting to stop the killing and torture of children in uganda. i think you would like them…fascinating guys and really interesting work…

  5. A whole new meaning and perspective on “lending a helping hand”> Dynamite!

  6. The every day every man brand of heroism makes sense. The vestiges of colonialism on the continent left a level of dependency which we all can stand to overcome. Great video and post.
