Day 284: Do You Give a Man a Fish or Do You Teach Him to Fish?

I do believe that sometimes you give a man a fish, and sometimes you need to teach a man to fish. This give will do both.


Africa is a hot topic for 365give. There is so much need in Africa and so many ways to help. This give was sent to me from a friend and follower Marcia Bujold. She volunteers her time using her expertise as a graphic designer to support Hands of Action. Today I wanted to support Hands of Action and I can do it in just a few short minutes by clicking to vote.
