35 Seconds, 6 Good Deeds

Okay, so I'm still tweaking the new theme. I can't help it; I'm a graphics artist. You'll notice that most recently I added some graphic links to the right sidebar - click them and help. I timed it - from The Hunger Site, which I have as my home page, it takes approximately 35 seconds to click each tab and the link to help. When was the last time you did six good deeds inside of a minute, let alone just over half a minute?


Every 3.6 seconds someone dies of hunger. 75% of them are children under the age of 5 - Sarah's age or younger.


My maternal great-grandmother died of breast cancer. Each year, 211,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 43,300 die.


Over 200,000 children die every week from preventable causes, and many millions more suffer from preventable disease, curable blindness, landmines and other crippling accidents.


Many children nationwide and around the world do not have even one book.


Acres and acres of rainforest, housing thousands of species of plant life used to treat and cure disease, are destroyed every day.


Thousands of animals are put down daily because owners did not spay, neuter, or even just want their pets anymore.

35 seconds, 6 good deeds - don't tell me you don't have the time.
