Grrrrrrr. I hate that. Yes, I said Hate.

I mean it. Do not propagandize the soldiers, the wounded, the children. We have enough trouble with keeping things in balance. Everyone hates war, not everyone understands that sometimes you have to fight.

Hi there,

I just signed up for your RSS feed and found this. Fantastic! I sent them the total that was available on my credit card.

Working in marketing, you see so much money getting thrown around on useless junk. I have a one-year-old, and it's easy to forget how blessed I am that he is safe and healthy.

Thanks for such an inspiring post.

Wow, Naomi, I am honored that you would take action that way.

It's funny, I don't actually think marketing is a stupid or evil endeavor (usually)--I think marketing is communiction, which is vital & good. But there are those moments that shock you, when you realize you're making yourself nuts over something very trivial. Anyway, thank you for taking action.

I don't know if I completely understand Stephen's position, but Stephen, welcome to RC.

I agree that we need to be very careful with how we use the evidence of another person's suffering. I get upset with the need to intrude on private feelings here in the US. I think we need to balance the "need to know" with respect for the dignity of each person.

I applaud your transition in this piece from hopelessness "I can't do anything to help" to something that you CAN do. Wonderful! Too many people get stuck at what they can't do and never see the incredible opportunities all around them every day to profoundly touch the life of some one person.

You're so right about marketing being communication. I honestly feel like I have the most amazing job in the world. I run a marketing company that only takes on microbusinesses as clients - businesses with fewer than 5 employees. Those guys inspire me. It's when you read some of the industry publications and you just want to say, "Yuck."

Thanks again. Awesome site. Loved the pink thing.
