Celebrations all day Saturday

-- Conscious Celebrations --

Today is a busy one for most of us because of the incredible conscious celebrations happening across the globe. During Make A Difference Day we can look at some of the older posts I've done recently on homeless, peace and poverty, or perhaps the challenge I put forth to our blog readers earlier this week. According to the USA Weekend site (www.usaweekend.com) "Make a Difference Day is the most emcompasing national day of helping others --A celebration of neighbors helping neighbors."

Being Saturday we might be able to find a few precious moments to go through a closet, a cupboard or perhaps a couple storage boxes to see what we have stored away that others could benefit from today. If you don't have the time for deliveries consider hiring a local delivery, haul-it, or handy-man company to take the load of materials to the designated sites. Consider missions for the poor, churches that offer thrift shops or meals, women's support centers and many other organizations out there working to make a difference - every day. They will love your pantry cupboard excess, your fridge/freezer clean-out days, your old mattress... even old and worn towels and stuffed toys can find a happy home at pet shelters. ...Volunteering is another alternative to making a difference today, and every day.

Today is also United Nations Day, a very important celebration that commemorates the founding of the United Nations in October 1945.

And let us not forget that we are also celebrating the International Day of Climate Change. According to the Green Packs website (www.greenpacks.org) "On Saturday, October 24, people in 181 countries are coming together for what many are describing as the most widespread day of environmental action in the planet’s history. They’re gathering to call for strong action and bold leadership on the climate crisis."
