Well, I'm just not so sure. Sweet sentiment though. People should be nicer and give more as humans, not to mimic a specific historical figure. Realistically though, they won't.

Robot Nine, that's such a sad way of looking at it. :( I agree with you that people sould be nicer and give more, but I actually believe that realistically, they will. They probably won't give as much as they *should*, but considering that they went from a handful of churches to enough churches to give $10 million, I think they're on to something.

This seems to be taking off. I've seen it a number of places now, and it's been well recieved. Great idea!

I love this video. I've seen it many times and it's still touching every time I see it.

I'm not particularly religious, but this was very inspiring, very well done, and really quite poignant. I hope it goes "viral" and that people don't just take a drive-by "oh that's nice" look at it, but that they REALLY consider they could be a part of the solution--not just the clean water solution, but ANY solution that can act as an antidote in a culture where people TRAMPLE ONE ANOTHER for flat-screen televisions.

As for me, I'm giving only handmade gifts, including heirloom seeds saved from my own plants that I plan to pass on to others for the coming spring. I wish I had money to give to charity, but I'm struggling to make ends meet as it is. :/

Thanks for the thoughts, everyone. I wanted to echo Kelsie's comment. Just for the record, I do not practice any religion. That doesn't mean that this isn't a message that should be heard and bred into our culture. Time to shift our paradigm, I believe.
