Taking Action

Hopefully you had a chance to check out the video in my last post of the heartbreaking deaths of children in Nigeria due to lead poisoning. I've been wracking my brain for something to do to help out, and I've finally settled on an idea - though I'm open to adding to it!

My plan for August all along has been to sort through all of our stuff and purge or pack it while I have the time. I've been planning on taking all the "throw" stuff to a local rescue mission or goodwill, but then I had an idea: What if I have a yard sale instead, and send all the money to the rescue efforts in Nigeria?

So, while I have a lot of stuff, I don't have enough to make a good sale and I need some people to join with me. I don't have a date yet, but sometime mid-August. Anyone interested in cleaning out their home around the same time? Or, anyone willing to help with set-up, advertising, etc.?

I'm really excited about this - it's definitely giving me more motivation to get rid of stuff!
