5 writers. 200,000 donors. A true reason to shout hallelujah! #IStandWithLove
“Love is worth all the hullaballo.”—Cheryl Strayed
I didn’t plan to write a blog post this morning. I’m out the door in 5 minutes. But I’m so stoked about this amazing piece of news that I really have no choice.
Five writers raised $1 million to help Syrian refugees in a mere 31 hours. That’s barely more than a day.
But what’s even cooler is that this great gift to our suffering brothers and sisters was raised by all of us together. No one gave more than $25 which means the little guys came together for a great cause. Without politicians. Or institutions.
I’d also like to thank the Donald Trumps and the Isils of the world who, on some cosmic level, agreed to play the part of the “bad guys” so the rest of us can come together and prove to ourselves what is truly possible. Maybe these “dark forces” are part of the universe’s bigger plan? Not for me to judge. My only job is keep holding out for love. For a higher Truth.
The whole scenario gives me SO. MUCH. HOPE. Anything is possible. We CAN change the world, guys. And no better time to be reminded of that than Christmas. The light is definitely here.
Enjoy your holidays. Make it the best one ever. And remember to do more of what you want to do and less of what you think you should.
I love you all SO MUCH.
