Oh ... Really?

STG: Helping Build An English Library For Teenagers

Strengthen the Good was born out of the ashes of despair in evil. But rather than fight back directly against the evil in the world, this mission seeks to weaken evil by Strengthening the Good.

Every three weeks or so, a call goes out to the blogosphere to bring attention to a micro-charity or cause. Through this network, the word is passed, the charity is helped, and good is empowered a little more in our world.


Today I want to highlight something a bit different, and in the interest of full disclosure I want everyone to know that the main party involved, Douglas Dart, has been a friend of mine for decades. Douglas, his wife, and his three young daughters are currently spending a year living in Bratislava, Slovakia. Doug's (unpaid) mission: teach English and American Studies to Slovakian high school students at a school called The C.S. Lewis Bilingual Gymnaziumin in Bratislava's Petrzalka district.

What is needed most is not necessarily money. They need books. There is a huge list posted at STG. If one would rather donate to purchase the books, that's fine too. And very much appreciated. Go read about Douglas Dart and his work to bring the "language of freedom" (as the students call it) to the children of this former-communist state.

Don't just fight evil ... Strengthen the Good.
