Ronnica from the Ignorant Historian is participating in the 2010 Readathon for Hunger, organised by her sister-in-law. Basically the way it works is that you donate $1 or purchase one non-perishable food item for each hour you read and donate them to a local food bank. You can read her post here.
I live half a world away from Ronnica who lives in the US, but I can still participate from here in rural Western Australia. I'm an avid reader and I care very much for those who struggle with poverty so this is an ideal opportunity to put faith into action. Dalwallinu has a community pantry for those in need.
I'm not trying to make anyone feel guilty here, but if you're desperately wanting to show love to others and aren't sure where to start, consider particpating in the 2010 Readathon for Hunger...from wherever you are.
