Hope Comes Alive

There are many important causes and concerns that we can be occupied with, especially at this time of year when our eyes are more easily drawn outwards from ourselves than they might be at other seasons.

Recently I heard the gay Scotish actor Alan Cummings share something about the causes which he concerns himself with. I thought that perhaps sharing the link for his website and for a few important organizations which work for compassion and fairness for all people would be timely.

For information on causes Alan Cummings supports, go to www.alancummings.com/frame.htm and click on the tab "The Bon Viveur" then on the subcategory of "Alan Supports".

I was impressed that recently Alan Cummings traveled across part of China to raise money for amfAR, the American Foundation for AIDS Research. The link for amfAR is www.amfAR.org.

On the Alan Cummings website, go to the section entitled "Up and Cumming" to learn more about his TrekAsia for AmfAR and www.trekasia.kintera.org.

Two other links for organizations which I am familiar with and which stand out to me from Alan's website are as follows:

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS at www.bcefa.org


United for Peace and Justice at www.unitedforpeace.org

There are many organizations working for compassion and fairness for all people. What is important is not so much what causes we support as that we do something to leave this big world a better place.

In this special season of hope and light, may you know true love and peace and share it freely!
