HONORING WOMEN


This week I'm sharing links in honor of the UN's CEDAW--The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women -- in celebration of women and children around the world and their right to freedom and full self-expression.

Lynn, what a great post! I am a big fan of THREE CUPS OF TEA, and also of Feed The Children and the Heifer Project. There are so many needs in the world and I feel it's our duty to do our part. So nice to read about your favorite charities and organizations. I like to help those in the U.S., but we can't stick our heads in the sand about the needs of the rest of the world, can we?

Thanks, Caroline - Love the Heifer Project myself. I bought my daughter a baby chick 25 years ago to give eggs to a family in S.A. The issue of US versus the rest of the world sometimes seems like a problem but we each can pick what moves us! There's plenty of work needed everywhere!

It is really a good thing that some people would give their time to give their unconditional service to the people who are less fortunate. If everyone would have the same devotion, then no one would be in that situation.
