The Power of Caring

Dearest Blog Reader, 

If you've been following my blog, you will know that I am more of an activism-through-song kind of person. The time has come to do something super substantial! For about 2 years, I have been donating 10% of my monthly income to charity. This practice has made me keenly aware of the fact that we are all interconnected and that there is real power is sharing and spreading our wealth. 10% is a standard amount to give (like tithing in some religious circles). The best time to give is NOW, not when you think you can afford it. Besides the obvious philanthropic reasons for giving, this practice increases your own prosperity. Since my husband and I began doing this, we are always taken of. We always seem to have enough to do the things that matter to us, like eat organic food, and travel.

Where I give my money matters to me. I do not like to give to large non-profits because I feel that most of the money goes to administrative costs, and I'd rather help people directly. That's why this project is really exciting...

I am now working with my community to create a grass-roots effort to assist hungry children and families in our neighborhood. I would be grateful if you could take a look at what we are doing and consider becoming involved or donating. 

The CARING COALITION is a joint venture, including the Sikh Community, other Phoenix faith communities, and the Coronado Neighborhood.

There are children in our neighborhood who eat breakfast and lunch at school during the week but are going without adequate food on weekends.

Starting January 2014 we are providing weekend food for 20 of these children. We are starting small, but hope to grow, serving more children and families and providing more services.

Here are the ways you can help support this effort: 

1. Donate money (our biggest need!) - Visit www.CaringCoalitionAZ.org to donate online or we can gratefully accept cash in person.

2. Help pack food bags - Email caringcoalition@gmail.com to sign up for a date to help.

3. Spread the word - If you know people who might be interested, please share this info.

4. Become a sponsor (as an individual or a business) - We'll have sponsorship packages soon. Email caringcoalition@gmail.com for info.

As always,
