Merry Christmas!


The tree is decorated, the lights are shining, the lists are being finished. Christmas is just around the corner, and in the rush before the big day we often forget what is most important, who is most important.
The people you know, and love. Family and friends whose lives you are about to change with a new pair of socks.
And the people you may never meet, but you can change their lives too.
Actually, scratch that. I'm too busy. I am not going to click here, or here, or here to change an impoverished family's life - not my problem, is it?
So, everybody, ask yourself - can I make time to help someone survive in a Third World country? Can I make the time to give fresh water to an impoverished community? Can I make time to feed a family, educate a child? 
If you say you can make the time, you can. Commit to change, and you will make a difference in the world - from home, and often for less than you expected. Don't give up things to change - just change for change! Buy FairTrade chocolate instead of slave made, buy an Oxfam gift instead of some socks. It's not hard, you know - you just have to commit. Don't forget, you can swap things on your kilometre long shopping list for palm oil free alternatives - save the tigers and orangutans! - at this site.
So, in case I don't post again before the big day, have a safe, happy, and very merry Christmas this year!
