Class posting 6/21/05

I found the reading to be very thankful to find that there is organization out there who are trying to assist people. This reading reminded me of Heiffer International Ranch in Arkansas. The ranch is an non-profit organization that tried to aid those who needed help by providing them with goods such as a cow or seed. The first born of an animal was pass on into the next family in the village and the cycle continue that way the people will have something other than just having nothing. In the reading for example "the one campaign" there is celebrities that join in the fundrasing but in heiffer ranch it is done only by the people and volunteer who wants to help those who are in need of help. I think the idea of G8 is great that the eight most wealthiest countries will come togehter to help fight proverty but why wait and not act now because with the wait more and more children are dying. So i think we should act now to decided wheather what is best.
