Tuesday’s Worthy Causes

nce Again it’s time for Tuesday’s Cause –

I’d still like to take a moment to remind everyone that right now there are 2 VERY worthy causes here in our own podcasting community they are the Legal Defense Fund to Help SVAllie with her legal costs from her custody battle to keep the EP (Her daughter the Elf Princess) with her and the Trust for Sonic Boom (SB is Tee Morris’s daughter and recently tragedy struck taking Tee’s Wife Natalie suddenly but you knew that already right?  If not how the heck do you know about me and not Tee?) / The Boom Effect.  Links provided below.

Help out if you can if not with a few $$$ with some encouragement, prayer, or time.

http://teeandserena.chipin.com/sonic-booms-trust / http://www.theboomeffect.org/ The Auction fro the Boom Effect will be this coming Saturday – 2-27-2010 – 10 AM EST to 3 PM EST – You can place a proxy bid at the site or “attend” the live auction via Ustream – http://www.ustream.tv/channel/theboomeffect

But there are a lot of causes out there that we don’t see, children that need a transplant families effected by disaster, and nations effected by even larger disasters.   Take a moment today and pray or send positive thoughts / energy (whatever your “thing” is) and if you got a spare dime chip it in to help a cause, or better yet donate some time to help a cause along or even a shoulder or an ear to someone that is effected by a tragedy.

This week is kind of a hold over from last week.  It’s still cold out there and here’s another solution to help with the homeless issue.  I’d like to talk well type briefly about an organization that has been helping with the homelessness issue for a long time.  Habitat for Humanity.  Here’s a perfect opportunity to get out there and lend a hand.  One of the things I like about this program is that it’s not giving a house away for free, Habitat just doesn’t make any profit on it.  AND the best part is the people that get the house have to bust their ass in helping to build / renovate it and other projects.  Yeah it’s a Christian program and that might turn some of you away right there that have different beliefs, but it’s for a good cause.  And getting out into fresh air and building a house can help get the butt out of the chair and get a little exercise that some people may be languishing they need.  (plus you may learn a few DIY tips to fix things around your own place so next time you don’t need to call a contractor for some of the little things).

Hit me up at rasplundjr@gmail.com with the Subject Tuesday Cause if you have a cause you want / need me to pimp.  There are plenty of people out there that need a hand, not just a hand out.  See who you can help today.

Thanks for your time today.
God Bless – If God isn’t your thing then well it’s still mine but Positive thoughts your way still.

  1. Thanks for your regular “Tuesday’s Worthy Causes” posts.
    Way to use the Internet for the good & not the evil – (o.k. maybe some mild mischief from time to time, but never the evil) 🙂

  2. I don’t nearly do as much as I should, and I thought this would be a good thing. Maybe since I can’t do as much as I’d like if I can point the way for others to help out I could alleviate some of my guilt for not being able to donate time like I wish I could.
