The Culture Blogs: a SmallSmall Thing

Howdy friends.  Sorry I've been away for a little bit.  Family comes before the blog, and I've spent most of this weekend with my wife.  We've been able to watch Hunger Games and participate in the events of the Holi celebration of the Hindu people.  I truly cherish the time I have to spend with my wife.

Really all of this quest for me to learn how to be a better writer, to eventually publish fiction, and even this blog has everything to do with being able to spend time with my family.  It is an investment of time and effort now to do everything I really want to be able to do with my life later.

One of the things that I want to do with my life is support causes that genuinely deserve it.  On my Google Plus account, I came across a post from Chuck Wendig (You know him as the vulgar writing comedian that I happen to like for his shock value, and the fact that he makes good points).  He was supporting funding of this documentary on Kickstarter, and I wanted to do my part to help.  So instead of sitting here giving you my opinion on culture in Africa, I thought I would enlist your support on a documentary on some good people who are trying to change the culture of Liberia that women may have more rights.  The film they are creating is called, "Smallsmall Thing."

I'm not going to say that I have a lot to offer them, but anything we can give to them will make a difference.  I believe in being the change that I want to see in the world.  I hope that you'll take this opportunity to possibly begin a change for these people.  Corruption and evil doesn't thrive in an environment where it has been exposed, and it is my prayer that by supporting this documentary that we'll be better able to make the kind of world that we would feel safe to raise children in.  Thank you for your time.

Rather than share about my contest for the month, I'll leave it off here.  There is plenty to look into on their Kickstarter project.  Hope you give a little to them, it is a worthy cause.  I'm still Jayrod Garrett, the First OG.  My question for you tonight is: What is the change that you want to see in the world?
