Here's the opportunity for us to make a difference for one of our own members with very little pain. Greg Kavarnos spends a lot of time here volunteering his time to keep our discussions on track and civil.
He has a retreat coming up at the end of this month that is the first in a seven year cycle that he won't be able to attend simply for lack of funds in this really tough time in Greece.
I don't know about you, but I've been spending the last few years paying for bailouts of the banks that caused the mess of which Greg is collateral damage. I think I would prefer to help the people who are actually suffering from the greed and rash decisions of the banks.
Let's convince Greg to put up a request for funds on the Offering Bowl. I'll put up the deposit fee for the retreat, so all we need to come up with is money for food and his travel up to the retreat center.
What do you guys think? We have three weeks to get it together and with only small contributions we can make it happen!
