A friend of mine is raising money to buy socks for the homeless in Chicago, Saint Louis, Indianapolis, and Urbana-Champaign. The whole thing started about four years ago when he was helping prepare and serve food to the homeless in a park in Champaign and thought there was more to be done... so he started buying pairs of gloves. The next year he got a little more organized, and friends and family started donating so he could buy even more gloves. Having grown each year, the goal is now to distribute a bare minimum of $6,000 pairs of socks for the coming winter. They need to raise over $3,000 to meet this goal and have already started us off with the jar half full. So for you jar-half-empty pessimists out there, do something about it. Donate a few bucks, send the link to someone you think may be so inspired, or, best yet, do both.

Help us give out 6,000 pairs of socks to people staying outdoors during the freezing midwest winter months.

First time you'll hear a Georgia Republican complain about religion in politics and an uneducated electorate.

A Stitch In Time Saves Your Toe
This post will probably
be one of our last as our time here in Peru is rather quickly coming
to a close. Since the last post in April not a whole lot has happened
or changed, but I'll try to get a good idea across to you of what the
last 6 months of Peace C...

In Case You´ve Forgotten Us...
We are, indeed, still alive. I apologize
for the extended absence, but I assure you all that we are as well as can be
expected. We’re just about at the year and a half mark, and were I to write in
detail of every little thing, you’d find yourselves in a par...

Thanksgiving
So we had a few Thanksgiving celebrations. The Sunday before, we had a potluck with the other volunteers in which we took over the kitchen of a local café. There was turkey, green bean casserole, sweet potato pie, pasta salad (Menda´s plate), spiced peaches...

Wrapping This Thang Up
This will be the last blog post. As most of you know, we are now back in the States and fully moved to Olympia, WA, beginning the next stage of our lives together in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. So here's how our last month in Peru went. Doing as my fam...

Parackin´ Out
This past week we were supposed to have
gone to Arequipa, hiked the Colca Canyon, eaten some rocoto relleno and relaxed
in what is supposed to be one of Peru’s cleanest and most beautiful
cities.  Unfortunately, our plans were
disrupted by some strikes, but...

End Of Year Wrap Up
Here are some photos from these last few weeks of the school year here. A few from classes, a few from a chocolatada, a few while planting trees, the winners of a poster contest Menda sponsored and of course some from Christmas with our host family. [Fotos]

Happy Birthday, Paria
So I guess yesterday was the anniversary of our town. I was pretty sure they celebrated that a little over a month ago. Oh well, here´s an album of little kids in traditional Peruvian dress.

Good food all around but consistently inattentive and sometimes flat out rude service. Even with a completely underwhelming amount of patrons, I sometimes find myself waiting upward of five minutes without even being acknowledged, let alone assisted in any way. But, yeah, the baked goods are great.
