Using Your Creativity in Meaningful Ways
With this post I want to ask you to use your creativity in an important and meaningful way. You are certainly aware of the news coming from Louisiana and Mississippi regarding Hurricane Katrina. Of course, you can visit these pages at NetworkForGood.org and FEMA to learn about ways you can help alleviate the loss and suffering -- if you haven't done so already.Things are improving, but there's a long road to recovery ahead. So think about how you can help further. Present a concert or art sale or other event to raise money. Consider ways you can donate or use your talents to make a difference.
Example: Anne Leighton is a writer, poet, animal lover and publicist who embodies this attitude. On her web site, she encourages support of Habitat for Humanity in Biloxi, Mississippi, and chapters of the Humane Society in the Gulf area. She is also the author of Using Your Art & the Media to Comfort People, a book that clearly speaks to the philosophy of using your talents for the good of all concerned.
So ... Write a song, poem or article. Host a displaced family. Travel to the affected areas and volunteer. Call someone you know in Louisiana and Mississippi and ask what they need. Be creative and make a difference!
