- Campbell Soup Co. just started a neat campaign called "Help Grow Your Soup." Stop by their site, and click on the red barn (you can do so once a day through June 2009!), and they'll donate a dollar to the National FFA Organization (an agricultural education group) "to help fuel the future of American farming."
- Isn't Monica's hospitality inspiring? Though I don't anticipate hosting any Ugandans anytime soon, I would like to try this dinner of curried beans (sans tomato) and chapati. Yum!
- One of my college roomies, Hayley (who I wrote about here), recently started a blog. Stop by and say hi, and while you're there, check out this cute centerpiece idea!
- I just learned about an interesting site from my friend Amanda. I didn't know if I wanted to take the 20 minutes to watch the educational film, but I'm glad I did. It's an eye-opening look at U.S. consumption patterns. The video is full of facts and statistics--one of the statements that stood out to me is that the United States makes up 5% of the world's population, and yet we use 30% of the world's resources and produce the same percentage of the world's waste. Tragic! At the end of the video, there's a list of 10 practical ways we can help play address the issues from the film. Definitely gives us some things to think about . . .
Thanks for all your great comments on Monday's post. I wasn't sure what the reaction would be about my proposed "club," but quite a few of you were enthusiastic. I need to give it some more thought--for one thing, it needs a better name (any ideas?), so I'll post again soon when I've formulated some more details. Thanks for joining me on this journey!
