today, october 15, is blog action day and it is a privilege to be a part of it raising awareness for poverty.
as i have mentioned earlier, this journey to become minimalist is a spiritual journey for me. i have traveled to many third-world countries and have seen people living in true poverty. i always return home moved to do something but quickly fall back into my normal routine of accumulating more and more stuff. in many ways, this decision to become minimalist is an answer to that growing discontent in my life.
the statistics tell us that half of the world’s population (3 billion people) live on less than $2.50/day – almost 1 billion of which are hungry. 16,000 children will die today because of hunger.
today, along with me, will you consider making a donation to world vision and help fight poverty around the world?
