My cane has a history
as it was bought by my mother
many years ago for my father
one day on the mainland
when he could not walk anymore,
later also used by her,
and recently by my son when he hurt his knee,
and now this stick is my companion,
my way to stay mobile;
best friend and ugly as hell,
our relationship started on the wrong foot anyway
as I tripped over
but now I am used to it’s ways
and know how walking should be done.
My cane is now on what I do lean,
my cane and I go steady, so:
come on world. We are so ready!
We had an outstanding first day in our fundraising campaign for the refugee aid organization International Rescue Committee. In just 24 hours we raised $950, nearly half of our $2,000 goal. We wanted to take this opportunity to say Thank You to everyone who has participated so far.
And yet, as good as it feels to say “we’re half way there” it’s sobering to know we still need twice as many contributions to hit our target.
The IRC really is a great charity whose work is sorely needed in places like Syria. So if you haven’t yet given, please consider making a donation. And if you can’t give, please help us spread the word on your own blogs and social media outlets.
We know you may need more information to make an informed decision so we’ve gathered some resources in the links below:
