Anyone who knows me on FB has probably realised how big a part of my life food takes up. Unwinding after a job is usually done around a table, socialising with friends, the same. The love of photography and food has made this portion of my life readily accessible to anyone who chooses to see what I post, and I told Chad that this year, a big part of me felt like a hypocrite, because of how food centric I've been.
At the end of this week, as usual, I go back to normal life.
For Chad, a big part of it is about being aware and raising not just money, but awareness. I thought about it all weekend, and decided that he was right. For me though, the awareness, or re-awareness, would begin at home. It's easy to lose sight of things that help keep you grounded sometimes, and this year, this challenge starts with me.
I looked through the organisations that I could donate to this year, and have chosen Possible, a nonprofit healthcare company that delivers high quality, low cost healthcare to the world’s poor - https://www.livebelowtheline.com/us/partner/nyayahealth#sthash.1yHgqpuK.dpuf
If you'd like to join us in eating on $10/day, we'd love to have the company - we've found that having team members helps with feelings of isolation and anger.
If you'd like to donate - even if it's a dollar - every single one counts, as this challenge helps show.
If you'd like to share your opinions - for or against what we're doing, this is welcome as well - awareness is impossible without conversation and that's a big part of why we keep doing this.
We also appreciate your advice on where to shop and what to buy - more people than we realise live on restrictive budgets and have to make these food buying decisions every day.
Thanks again for taking your time to read what I share and for sharing your views with me.
