The world in Action:
I love AVAAZ because it doesn’t wait for causes to become important to churches or politicians. It is made up of 41 million or so people on the planet who support the work it does, whether saving people, eco-systems, or elephants. In fact, its only criteria seems to be, when confronting outrageous happenings and behaviors in the world, in the words of George Carlin, “It’s Bullshit, and Its Bad For Ya.” Today there is an appeal to save what is left of the global elephant population. These mysterious and holy beings are being destroyed brutally, and at an alarming rate. They are also major teachers and inspirations. Without them humans are cruelly diminished. Please connect with AVAAZ today and send one baby elephant and its parents not a bullet but – in the form of a donation for the work – a human kiss.
