How To Get Involved

a snarky take on getting off your ass and getting involved

The year 2018 will be known as the year of outrage.

It’s been filled with atrocities at home and abroad, protests, scandals, and mass incompetence. With the Trump administration at the wheel, America’s heading off a cliff at full speed.

It’s easy to get caught up in the cloud of outrage. We rage on social media. We rage as we read the news. We rage as we protest. Sometimes, it makes a difference but most often, it doesn’t. It just becomes a cloud of anger.

The problem with this is that outrage is easy. Getting involved is hard work and costs something of us.

Adam McLane is someone who couldn’t take it anymore, so he took his outrage and thrust it into action. Living in San Diego and reading the reports of the migrant caravan approaching the US Southern border, Adam couldn’t stand idly by and do nothing. He decided to get involved and do what he could. What resulted has been an incredible story of what it looks like to turn your outrage into action.

We’ll talk today about what it takes to make that first step towards making a difference. So, let’s get involved!

If 2018 was the year of outrage, let’s make 2019 the year of action.

If you want to help out and donate to Adam’s deliveries to Tijuana, you can click here to buy items for aid via Adam’s Amazon Wish.

By Christmas, about 9,000 people will need shelter at the border. Right now, most people are sleeping on cardboard at a park in a government-run shelter. If you’re interested in donating to Praying Pelican Missions and their work with asylum seekers in Tijuana you can click here.

Come along for the ride as we skewer through life, culture, and spirituality in the face of a changing world.

    I am all for helping out the poor and needy as well for immigrants in crisis when it in our capacity to do so. However, I do not agree that we should necessarily allow all illegal aliens into our country without the proper vetting. Adam McClane is a great guy! I went on a mission trip with him to Mexico. However, I do not agree with the Trump bashing and blaming his administration. Have you not heard all of the Democratic speeches from Bill Clinton on down saying that we cannot just let anyone in to our country willy-nilly? Why, even old Chuck is on record saying that only immigrants that enter our country legally should be welcomed! Anyway, I’m not here to bash anyone. I’m just here to remind people about 9-11-01 and why the President of the United States has an obligation first to protect people in this country. That is his primary job, after all, and especially after 9-11 when the War on Terror first began! May I make a suggestion? Instead of bashing Trump, why don’t you just pray for him? And please don’t try to call me a racist, because I’m not. In fact, I have people of all color, races, and creeds in my own family and I love them all just the same! In addition, I have nothing but compassion for the people in these migrant shelters in Tijuana. That is why I am using an Amazon gift card that I received for Christmas to help them out. Other than that, I am all for building the wall!
