Real Men Effecting Real Change
Ed , Ron , Sam
I was just in a chat room about world poverty. And with opinions like what I saw there it is no wonder this is an issue. The general consensus is that charities are nothing more than big business, and would keep as much money as they legally could for themselves.
I guess I am blessed to see the example set by these three inspirational Men
Each one works tirelessly to " be a voice for those with no voice" Ed... packed up and moved to the Ukraine were he would be at the front gate of the Former USSR, bringing help to the helpless. Ron.... along with pastoring a small community church, sits on the boards of several charitable organizations. His driving message is that every single one of us has the ability to make a difference in our community and in our country and around the world. He leads by example! Sam..... He's the wild guy, he takes his incredible enthusiasm and passion , and uses it to inspire entire organizations and communities to make a difference. I have donated to charities dirrected by all three of these men, and have not only seen every penny make it to the intended need, but many times, by the time the money makes it to the intended location it is two or three times more. They have found others to support as well, or maybe they have put up their own finances, but there has never been any question in my mind about where the money went. Just look at some of the previous posts and you will see the high level of accountability.
All three of these men are humble and will be slightly less than impressed with this post, but I think it's important that people know that in this day and age, there are still Real Men Effecting Real Change
