There has to be a balance. Between talk of what is going on in the world, and actually doing something about it. Between mass consumerism and philanthropy.
My amazing friend Mark is going to Africa to create a film and videos for a non-profit group, Uganda Village Project, which does amazing work in the region for Clean Water * Scholarship Fund * Healthcare / Obstetric Fistula * HIV/AIDS * Malaria * Income Generation * Please help however you can. For me, it was easy to absorb what the group does by clicking on this site feature: Year in Pictures.
