Eugene Cho has just released a book today called Overrated: Are We More In Love With The Idea of Changing The World Than Actually Changing The World? The foreword is also by one of my favorite authors, Donald Miller, who wrote Blue Like Jazz.
One of the other reasons I’m so excited for this book is because Eugene Cho put in my testimony, about the time I gave away half my salary to fight human trafficking. I’m just crazy honored and humbled to be part of his work.
Back in 2012, I wrote a check for $10,000 to the charity One Day’s Wages, and after an awareness campaign, someone anonymously donated enough to make a matching contribution of another $10,000. If you want to see what the money does, check here.
It was one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done, and I don’t say any of this to brag. I say this to brag on God, who makes all this possible, and to brag on the millions of untold stories of real sacrifice, courage, and reckless grace. In a world so hurting, there are still people fighting for real change.
o are ye now
Last week I played Jenga with a mixed race kid, and when all the blocks fell, he yelled, “Django!”
Who else wants to go bowling?
I want to go to there.
Not sure why they didn’t play “She’s in Parties,” though! ;)
Always go to the police anyway. Even if it is a legitimate kid trying to get home, the people caring for him should be held responsible for sending him out to find an address alone.
