Five Gift Ideas for James McGovern
If you are feeling generous, here are five gift ideas you can give to me for the holidays...| | View blog reactions
- Many folks know that I am the leader for the Hartford Chapter of OWASP. To hold a meeting requires incurring several expenses. It would be great if the community would consider making a small donation of $20 that will be used to cover Pizza for upcoming meetings.
- I am savage in the pursuit of making poverty history and encourage bloggers to add the one.org banner to their blog.
- Giving money to the needy is good but helping them start their own business is better. The best way to do so is to embrace the notion of micro-financing where folks in third world countries can receive loans at low interest rates. I am a participant in Kiva and encourage others to make a small loan.
- If you prefer donations instead, then please consider making a donation to the Palestine Red Crescent Society. The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) is a national humanitarian society which provides a wide range of health, social and other humanitarian services to the Palestinian People throughout the Middle East.
- It is easy to write a check but harder to make time to help others in a personal way. If you know how to swing a hammer or have other home improvement skills, please consider volunteering for Habitat for Humanity...
