save the world and whatnot
Three good things you could do today:
- Call your members of Congress before 12 noon EST and ask them to pass a new farm bill that keeps nutrition increases and food aid changes intact. Instructions on how to do this are here; it takes less than 5 minutes and really makes a difference, so please take a second away from your other forms of at-work procrastination and give Congress a call.
- Today is World Malaria Day. You can help a family in need be protected from this entirely preventable disease by purchasing a $10 mosquito net. Skip that weekend movie (there's nothing good out, anyway) and save somebody's life.
- Say a prayer for my baby sister, who's interviewing for her dream job, the one for which she's worked through college and seminary, at 1pm.
