Okay folks here it is: This is your OPPORTUNITY to do something besides posting useless humanitarian status lines. As if merely re-posting itself would somehow solve the issue at hand and satisfy a philanthropic need.

Im poor and technically homeless yet I just gave $50 to the family of this man whom I've never met. Why? Because I saw a need and because my eyes welled up when I read the last blog post written by Joe Puryear's wife. I want you to do the same. Read it yourself and tell me you can just click past it without a thought or a care. Tell me you REALLY need another latte today and that's why you won't provide some assistance.

Go on, read it. I'll wait here for you...
