Keep your coins, I want change

I was browsing through the United Church's Wonder Cafe site and came across the link to the following image. I find it very thought provoking...

I don't know about you, but I find it much easier to donate a few bucks to charity than to make an effort to get involved, than to stand up and speak out against injustice and poverty, than to change myself or be an agent of change in others. Statements like the one in this image help to shake me out of my complacency, and move me into a place of action. Art...tis a powerful tool.

Also came across this link for 366 Community Service Ideas. What a fantastic list of ways to get involved in our communities and share our time and talents with others. I sometimes find it hard to know where to start when I think about taking action...this will be a great starting place!
