Activism, true activism -whether political, humanitarian or environmental- comes from a sensitivity to imbalance on the planet. True activism comes from a pure, feeling heart. It is a ‘hurt’ we feel, and it is this empathetic pain which provides the incentive to help others -not according to our own personal beliefs or judgments necessarily, but because some other part of ourself (whether human, animal or the Planet herself) is hurting and needs our help to heal, to be protected or be provided for.
We are the guardians of this Earth and for each other. We are intertwined, we are One; By helping others, we are helping ourselves. By spreading the Light, we all transcend the darkness. It is part of our evolution as a species. Archaic thoughts and conditioned responses of “it’s not my country, not my people, not my responsibility” no longer apply. As part of the human race which inhabits this wonderful Planet, it is our responsibility to share, to heal, to help those who need our help.
And awareness of these issues and opportunities to help the world is growing -has been growing- by leaps and bounds over the last several years. Increased information, increased sensitivity, and the energetic shifts currently underway are responsible. And that’s a good thing! But realistically, running off to Africa to help any number of Causes there is not realistic for most of us. Fortunately there have arisen several ‘armchair activist’ sites which provide food or services to those people or agencies in need.
Money, food or items are donated by the site sponsors whose ads appear on the site, the specific donation amount determined daily by the traffic to the site, counted by how many clicks are made on the buttons found there. Chances are, you’ve seen at least one or two of these forwarded in an email or perhaps run across a button for one or more on another site. This is my reminder that these sites exist and although I can not claim having personally done thorough research into the specifics of the corporations behind the screen so to speak, they may be worth investigating. These are some of the sites:
