  •  What is so good about this, though (3+ / 0-)

    is that lots of people can contribute, and feel comfortable know that if they just send you $5, it will add up.

    Lots of people can spare $5, even if they have their own unmet needs.

    The point I'm trying to make here is that the positive social impact of getting together and doing something like this (like with Sara's quilt projects) goes well beyond these pieces of money going back and forth.

    It generates something much more tangible than those symbolic pieces of paper. Community and trust and hope. Empowerment and realizing that even if you can't do much alone, you can do a lot when you band together.

    That is SO powerful.
