We recently did studied an alphabet of An Action a Day… online campaigns that we could support or do something online for free to support… This worked so well, we just chatted about a “campaign” sometime during each day, did a quick google search and learnt an enormous amount!!! I think we need to pursue this further and maybe we will look at doing this more often during the year. We really began this project to learn more about issues facing the world today and as a family we ended up really concerned for our world and the people living on it!!!
B is for Blood Donation: The UK website was brilliant for this, their funzone is just that, fun, and the virtual tour is perfect.
C is for Cancer: Cancer is so prevalent, I just can’t believe there are people who haven’t lost someone dear to them because of this disease. We thought it was important enough to have a blog tea party this year to raise funds… HEre is a click to cure breast cancer link.
D is for Diabetes: The Father person has Type 2 Diabetes, so this is a topic close to our heart… we didn’t even know their was a World Diabetes day!!!
E is for Education: The literacy site has a click to give button. We loved the Room to Read Website, there is even a South African Project. Did you know 80% of students in South Africa have no library – that is simply shocking when I consider how much freely available access to a library my children have.
J is for Jaguar: Jaguar was our inner animal when we played “What’s your inner animal? Scroll down on the WWF site to find it.
N is for NO Nestle: PhD in Parenting has heaps of information regarding Nestle and their atrocities…
P for Plastic, especially in our Oceans: Recently my boys did a workshop at the Aquarium and learnt about the 5 Gyre Project. Read about the plastic pollution problem in our Ocean. AAAAH my pet hate is packaging, you will be fired up to do something about plastic pollution.
Unreached People Groups from the Joshua Project… We have had this little badge in the corner of our website forever but we went and really followed along for a month… plotting the people on a world map and so on… really very interesting and fun!!!
We didn’t manage a cause a day so if you want to help us out then add a comment, we still have all the awkward letters: I, K, Q, V, W, X, Y and Z!!!
