    I support Orange County AIDS Services Foundation including OC AIDSwalk, Beckstrand Cancer Foundation's annual Diamond and Pearl Ball, Telecare For The Mentally Disabled, and a number of homeless shelters. I don't fund them but, I do volunteer. I found out about all of them the hard way and being I don't have to work while I go back to school I owe them my life.

    I don't expect to see working individuals as involved as I am but, I am just wondering if any of you extend yourself the extra mile to help out a particular Cause. Do you relate to your Cause or do you fear your help isn't good enough? When all is said and done it is the only part of our soul that reflects the sunshine!

    I would really like to know what tugs at your heart...

    What a great post!

    Aside from my church, I support the United Methodist Church's Homeless Outreach, the Columbus AIDS Task Force, the Gay Christian Network, and the Franklin County Dog and Cat Shelters. If I don't always give financial support, I will help out with my time and knowledge, which is always a pleasure.

    Personally, I feel called as a Christian, and as a United Methodist, to give my time and money to reach out and help the needy, downtrodden, helpless, and unloved just as God wants us to do, among many things. Volunteering at these places or knowing and seeing what they do really makes me feel all the more blessed for what I have and how I can give back and help, inspire, uplift, and love someone else, be it human or animal.

    And if you can't support a non-profit financially, they almost always love your volunteering abilities. icon_biggrin.gif

    Wow, what a beautiful and I do mean BEAUTIFUL set of commitments! I am so enormously inspired to find out there are other gay men out there that feel the power of Christ to such an extent that they TRULY follow his example. I am not a 100 percent Christian but, I really admire people that have let go to the complete power of faith. As you present, Methodists are VERY active in the homeless community and I have seen the miracles they make out of people's lives and it is so genuine!!! Nice to know who you are brother!!!
