Be The Change!! ♥ ♥ ♥

“If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with.” -Michael Jackson

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” -Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson left us many things, his music, his dancing, his vision. For me, his single most important contribution was his commitment to help those that are less fortunate, especially children. Most of us will never have his resources but what we do share is his desire to leave this world a better place than we found it. The best place for that to happen is at the community level and we don't have to have lots of resources in order to accomplish that.

I wanted to keep this blog simple. I want it be a place where MJ fans or anyone can make positive suggestions or share stories about what they have done to bring hope and comfort into the life of someone in despair in their community. I'd like this to be a place of encouragement and support. Like Michael said, "in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe"...that we can make a difference!

Thank you.

  1. Here is a web site that gives great suggestions on how to help disadvantaged kids, from donations, to volunteering, to fostering. When you have decided on a course of action make sure to choose only organizations that are trustworthy and that you believe in.

    Here's an excellent tip from this site:

    "Use your strengths and talents to help a disadvantaged child. Whatever your passion is--gardening, animals, engineering, archeology, cooking or languages--you can include a child and enrich both of your lives."
