Hey friends! Today is October 15th, Blog Action Day!
The topic this year is poverty. If you haven't posted already, I really encourage ya'll to take the time to facilitate a discussion or process the implications of certain actions or attitudes or even politics or faiths as they address poverty.
Register your blog for the day at: http://blogactionday.org/en.
(My previous post shows a video on the ambitions for the day)
If you're looking for a topic, please feel free to address the one I've chosen for the day - it's close to my heart as I have written grants for Eden Reforestation Projects and now am involved in the production of their videos explaining deforestation. Take a look!

This 4 minute video will be well worth your time to watch and learn about the basic reasons behind the causes of erosion, desertification, and mudslides. The good news is, working together we can plant trees and forest again.
Everything Lives Where Trees Live
Plant Trees – Save Lives!"
Embed the code below and start your own discussion on deforestation, desertification, and the hope that lies in reforestation and projects like ERP!
Just copy and paste. =)
