Tuesday’s Worthy Causes

Once 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?)

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

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.

Today’s focus will be on kids.  Why you ask because I’m a parent, and long before I was a parent I was an uncle, and not so long before that I was a kid myself.  Those of you who don’t like kids can move along and pay no attention to this because you really wont’ give a damn anyway.  Those that do care, I’d like to remind you that (especially in this economy) there are many children in this nation that don’t have enough to eat.  Share our strength is an organization that battles the demon that is childhood hunger.  Too many kids are going hungry, some see the strain that this economy is putting on their parents and try to tough it out, others the family just cannot provide.  Check out a local food pantry school, or Share Our Strength at http://strength.org to see how you can help defeat childhood hunger.  Food is something that gives us comfort.  Watch a street animal when it finds food, we as humans are wired VERY similarly.

The other thing I’d like to talk about today is education.  Schools all over are having funding cuts.  My oldest daughter’s school has a piss poor special ed dept, that really doesn’t try to assist my kid just pushes her through the system.  No matter how many times my wife tries to contact them to see what we can do to help them help our daughter they refuse to contact us back.  Too many kids in this nation are not getting the education they deserve.  Find out how you can help schools in your area give the children an education they can thrive on.  This is another one where you gotta look around locally and see how you can get involved.  Be it purchasing from a fund raiser, becoming a school booster or giving of your time helping tutor, or volunteering to help at the school.  It’s for our kids, if they’re not worth the effort who the hell is?

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.
