For future reference. Thanks, Dave!

"Project: AK-47 has only been operating in the United States for a year and a half, but it promotes and funds projects that have been directly working in Southeast Asia since 1994. The staff not only negotiate to demobilize child soldiers but provide everything they’ll need for a new life: shelter, food, clothing, trauma counseling, mentorship, education and, most of all, love. Programs even offer agricultural training to give youth the skills needed for employment in the country’s vital green tea farming industry. The staff is devoted to these youth until they become functioning adults, at which point they are facilitated into university, agriculture or other employment."

Dedicated to eradicating the concept of the "child soldier", Project: AK-47 has developed a line of socially responsible clothing to raise funds. All of the items in the store are sweatshop-free, and all of the profits go toward their rescue projects for child soldiers, and other children caught in the way of armed conflicts.

"A portion of the profit from our shirts will go to changing your world:

"Globally: Fighting to end extreme poverty in 3d world countries.

"Locally: Providing food for the hungry in the U.S.

"When you buy a shirt, you join a movement of people who want to change the world. We see need all around us. Stop talking about it. Start living the difference. It's not sacrifice unless it costs you something. Love is the weapon of the future. Be vigilant. Be tenacious. Be the change."

"Christianity, post-Reformation and post-Luther, with its teaching of a direct, personal, two-way link between the individual and God, unmediated by the collective, and unsubordinate to any other human being, smashes straight through the philosphical/spiritual framework I've just described. It offers something to hold on to to those anxious to cast off a crushing tribal groupthink. That is why and how it liberates.

"Those who want Africa to walk tall amid 21st-century global competition must not kid themselves that providing the material means or even the knowhow that accompanies what we call development will make the change. A whole belief system must first be supplanted.

"And I'm afraid it has to be supplanted by another. Removing Christian evangelism from the African equation may leave the continent at the mercy of a malign fusion of Nike, the witch doctor, the mobile phone and the machete."

"From now until when this campaign ends (approximately one month from now), every post will be related to my campaign to raise as much money as possible for Soldier's Angels.

"Soldier's Angels is a non-profit organization that does more for deployed troops than I can write here. The best way to find out everything they offer is to visit their website.

[...]

"I plan to auction off, on eBay, a signed copy of Homefront. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to Soldier's Angels.

"I realize I'm a 'nobody.' I'm not someone whose name will really mean anything scribbled inside of the book. However, I put over a year of my time, and every ounce of whatever writing talent I have, into this book. [...]

"It's the best, and most important, thing I've ever written. I'm giving it because it's all I have to give for this effort, and because it's not about the book, anyway. It's about where the money is going."

"My name is Mike Kobold, I'm a watchmaker and an armchair explorer. Unlike some of the hard-core professionals who wear my watches -divers, astronauts and explorers- I'm pretty much just a regular guy. Like most people, I have downfalls, shortcomings, and a number of irrational fears. For one, I'm scared of heights and am therefore risk-averse. I have ADD and am mildly dyslexic. Food is my downfall and I eat considerably more chocolate than anyone should. My job is sedentary and so is my lifestyle.

"Yet I've made it my goal to climb to the summit of Mount Everest. How do I go from here to there? Training and nutrition only get you so far, which is why I'm having to learn to control my fears and to overcome my weaknesses. My goal is to raise money for the Navy SEAL Warrior Fund. Because even a regular guy should do his part to help those who have risked their lives in the line of duty."

Excellent piece by Jim Manzi on how Obama, and to a lesser extent, McCain, don't quite get that someone has to pay for all that "greater good" they keep talking about. Donations don't appear out of thin air.
