For a long time I've believed that charity doesn't stop at far-off organizations that take my money to communities I may never see. I think charity should start with the people I care about. I have a friend who is struggling in this economy, and there aren't any organizations that can help him out of his current situation.
That gave me the idea for this month's charity: your home. I want to encourage all of you to find someone in your neighborhood, maybe where you work, or somewhere you spend a lot of time. If there's anything you can do to ease their struggles, please do it. It may not fix their problems, but I've seen how much a little kindness can help someone in need. And a little bit goes a very long way!
