Good People doing Great Things

On Monday, I read an article in the Daily Universe about a humanitarian group called Rising Star Outreach. They started a mobile medical clinic to help treat those affected with leprosy and they also started a school for children who come from leprosy-affected families. The article really touched me - there are people all over the world using their blessings to do good things and help others. That is what it's all about! I want to be a part of that. These things are what make life truly meaningful.

The president of Rising Star Outreach, Becky Douglas, said, "It seems like if you just lift your hand to help your fellowmen, God multiplies what you do by a thousand."

This morning, my friend Tiffany called me and told me there's a fundraiser tomorrow night for an organization who helps people affected with leprosy. The organizations for this fundraiser are Promethean Spark and Rising Star Outreach -- both are doing great things to help leprosy-affected individuals in India. Tiffany's friend is in charge of it and a couple of the musicians dropped out last minute so she asked me to play at it. I'm excited to get to play and hear more about the great things people are doing. If you're in the Provo, Utah area and can come, please do and spread the word! Here's the info:
