Last year Finn and I decided to run a little fundraiser. We would try to raise enough money to buy a sheep, a pig, a goat and a number of chickens for a family in a developing country. We did it by turning some of his artwork into notecards and selling them. He raised the money faster than I'd anticipated, and a gift from our church helped him meet the goal.
It made me realize that no matter where we are in life, we can find tiny ways to help others--writing a letter to someone whose spirits are low, giving a hug, extending extra grace to the frazzled grocery store clerk, drawing pictures.
