start a revolution in gift-giving.

“we can tell our values by looking at our checkbook stubs.”-gloria steinem

this quotation hit me hard, guys. i have a complicated relationship with stuff. it’s a constant struggle of godliness vs. worldliness. i’m starting small. i looked at the non-essential things i spend my money on, things like movie rentals, mani/pedis, and magazines (i have a mild addiction to magazines). i am cutting down on these things so that i can sponsor a child through tumaini. it’s such a small sacrifice to give.  donating to this or another like organization is also a great idea for a christmas gift.

and while we’re on the topic. want to give something more? buy fair trade gifts that are unique and helpful for something truly in need. see trade as one. i have a feeling that santa is bringing me a few things from this organization…
