Web Line — Tony Rogers


This time, here are some “good causes” Web sites.

Let’s start with the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence. This is a site that will inform and perhaps inspire all but the most diehard cynic. The Institute, founded and run by Arun Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson) and his wife, promotes “the philosophy and practice on nonviolence to help reduce the violence that consumes our hearts, our homes, and our societies”. Several great essays are provided, such as Terrorism and Nonviolence and Nonviolence — a Way of Life.

Médicins sans Frontières is the independent humanitarian medical aid agency whose twin objectives are providing medical assistance wherever needed and raising awareness of the plight of the people it helps. Chechnya, Congo, Afghanistan, Liberia, Ethiopia . . .

The set of pages at Network for Good — Africa is just part of a much larger benevolent site. Its intent is to illuminate the myriad problems plaguing Africa — AIDS and other diseases, poverty, debt, education deficits being the more obvious ones. Donate, volunteer, support the people of this desperate beleaguered continent.

The Hunger Site is a wonderful place where you can donate money to feed the world’s starving without spending a cent. When you click on the button provided, a bowl of food is provided by the site’s sponsors. It has several sister sites, including The Animal Rescue Site and The Rainforest Site.
