I cannot imagine having only mudcakes to eat. It is shameful that we allow this to go on. It's going to take all of us to change the world. It's not going to be the's going to be of us lovers of freedom, of peace and goodness to make the difference. Buy Fair Trade, think before you buy, help others. Thank you for the links. Peace! Linda

Hi! thanks for the free rice link. I just earned over 1500 grains of rice on the art test, which was gratifying.

Thank you, Charlotte. I will meet you at Silver Bella... My 23 yr old new college grad son (engineering) is living in central Haiti, working for Haiti Outreach 'til next May. Desperate poverty there, worsened by Huricanes Gustav, Hanna and Ike and the severe deforestation. He is working to finish building a school, then begins a water system project. He pays to live with a family that has no running water, toilets, electricity or much food. He IS the family's main source of income. This country and its brave volunteers need all the prayers and support they can get.
