#Syria #EducationEven4Girls | These amazing girls is one example:
Yamama and her cousin Hayat are Syrian refugees, but they’re in school in part because our community raised $1 million in a challenge grant to donor governments to save Syria from a lost generation of children without education. We just got word that governments have matched us over 100:1!! UN Education Envoy Gordon Brown called our effort “magnificent” and “important in getting governments to give.”
But ofc teh answer to my own q is simple. I love being part of a bigger world. Where small ppl can be big. I`m a small boy with thousands of friends on teh interwebz. Stretching four continents I actually make a difference. I get to be a small cog in teh big world. I get to take part in big events that change teh world – for teh better. How can I not love #Avaaz?
Take #MalalaYousafzai for instance. She fought for education for girls in Pakistan and got shot in teh head by teh taliban for it. She is bigger than God. And I got to be a little part of telling teh world about her. She did not die. I did not die. I love it.

I had fun creating a blog. I never was one to promote myself. I was right not to, I think. I have spent my life creating traffic for others, and actually did not understand how difficult it is – before now.
I reached like a dozen people or so in a week. Horrible. In some of my circles I would be called a faggot for even creating this. But I will try this for a little while longer. Just a little, cause I like that WordPress lets me distribute info across a lot of other platforms. Including teh groups and pages I admin on Facebook. =D
