Support a great cause

It's important to give back, especially to good causes, charities and those who might be less fortunate. "Give freely, even as you have been given freely," is one of my favorite Biblical sayings. It means that God gives freely to us all the time, and we can be more like God when we act like this with others.
There are plenty of great causes that I try to give to regularly. lately, I've been using the services of Wikipedia so often that I finally made a donation. Here's the link if you want to donate too.

New Moon Manifesting

Jana has started a new project, New Moon Manifesting, and it's already off to a great start. This new moon period is from Dec 27th 2008 to Jan 26th 2009. The idea is to focus on those things that we'd like to work on, manifest, accomplish, attract to our lives during this moon period. Then at the end of the moon we'll evaluate what we've done and make a new list for the next period. It's really a genius yet simple way to stay focused and goal-oriented throughout the year.

Truckee, CA Dec. 8, 2008 -- A new design for short story contests has launched online at, the contest that guarantees publicity to every writer. Vote4MyStory works for writers like American Idol works for talent. Judges are the public at large, and unknowns get opportunity for discovery on a global scale.
Vote4MyStory takes shorts and makes e-books, an e-friendly alternative to printed books. Categories are fun and fresh, not the generic ones of old contests like ‘fiction’ or ‘romance.’ 12 categories include; Tales from Traveling, Dumb Things I’ve Done, My Novel’s Great Beginning, Near Death Experiences, How I’d Like to Change the World, Great Pet Stories, Kid’s Do the Darndest Things, The Moment that Changed My Life Forever, Children’s Bedtime Stories, How I Met My True Love, Random Acts of Kindness, and Once Upon a Time.

Vote4MyStory was created by Jana and Jason Matthews, writers who experienced the difficulty in getting published/marketed and knew there had to be a better way. Jason commented, “Not only will Vote4MyStory help writers get their stories read, but the thoughtful categories and Earth friendly e-books will help make the world a better place.” 10% of all profits go to charitable causes.
