The Adventure Project


My favorite blog  Whatever by Meg featured a really cool fundraiser for The Adventure Project.

It's about helping people in Haiti, specifically women and children who are still living in less than ideal places after the major earth quake 2 years ago. Half a million people are still living in tents! Can you even conceive this idea? Cooking, sleeping, LIVING in a tent for years? My brain cannot even fathom this. I tap out at about 2 nights in a tent, maybe 3. Then I'm ready to head back to the comfort of my cozy home and sleep in my bed.

The project is about helping these women find better ways to cook for their families that doesn't lead to smoke inhalation coming into their tents which is very harmful to breathe, sometimes even fatal.
The video describes it much better than I do. Please watch and then donate.

If you're like me, you can easily drop $20 on useless stuff. Magazines, coffee, a new cd, book, clothes,etc. Think about and then Donate Here.

Have a great day!
