Adventures in Humanitarianism

This Thursday Mike and I will participate in the Point in Time Homeless Count. In order for O.C. to get $10 mill, they have to conduct this count on this one evening to try to determine how many homeless there are here in this area.

We'll be assigned a few miles to walk and count. I'm a bit nervous as it will be at night and I imagine we'll be in some rougher neighborhoods. And I've never interacted with homeless people before. But this sounds like a very worthwhile project, and I'm pleased (and a bit surprised) that the church had gotten behind this. Now if only I can find a babysitter Thursday evening...

Also, I'm arranging to deliever Valentine's Day gifts to women in a local shelter for women who are escaping domestic violence. Kudos to J.A. for coming up with this idea.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.blogspot.com

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David
