"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." ~Anne Bradstreet

As we enter continue through the hurricane season here on the east coast of the United States, we have been given a small taste of adversity. I work in a hotel, filled to capacity for several days in a row, following Irene, by people who were without clean water and/or electricity, those with damaged homes, or by those service people coming into the area to help clean up the mess, and restore us to our 'normal way of life'. My involvement here on Crowdrise, however, makes me aware that all of this past week is little more than a reminder of what a large part of Earth's inhabitants go through on a daily basis. Victims such as those of the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, the tsunami, mass flooding, and the tornadoes that ripped though the Continental US's mid-west will require months, if not years, of recover. And the vast majority have no hotel where they can spend that recovery period.

"A boy doesn't have to go to war to be a hero; he can say he doesn't like pie when he sees there isn't enough to go around." ~Ed Howe

Don't underestimate even the most modest of involvement here on this site...A September vote for you and your heroic efforts...

hey Lydia- Here’s an August Vote!

This month Imagine Scholar in South Africa is trying to raise money to buy some really cool books for class (listed on project page). We’re only $150 short for all the books needed for the next 6 months. Take a look at the project, and please send over any great ideas for middle school level books you think will inspire our students.

Have a great month!

"No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave." - Calvin Coolidge

Happy August! The word 'august' has many meanings as an adjective, including: noble, great, kingly, grand, excellent, imposing, impressive, superb, distinguished, magnificent, glorious, splendid, elevated, eminent, majestic, dignified, regal, stately, high-ranking, monumental, solemn, lofty, exalted...!

A vote for you, and for your 'august' efforts here on Crowdrise!
