Ripples #556: Dr. King!

Ripples #556: Dr. King!
Monday, Jan 18, 2010
The Ripples Project is a tribe of 23,950
who believe tiny actions create big possibilities


We must accept finite dissapointment,
but we must never lose infinite hope.
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., submitted by Samantha Z., Oklahoma



I believe that unarmed truth
and unconditional love
will have the final word in reality.
That is why right, temporarily defeated,
is stronger than evil triumphant.
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Each year in the U.S.A. we set aside the third Monday in January to honor
the magnificent Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who believed passionately in the
powerful and unending ripples of peace and justice. He was a primary
influence in the creation of this newsletter.

I ask Ripplers everywhere to honor Dr. King by donating $10 to a charity
already on the ground in Haiti [ has compiled an
excellent list] and another $10 to a local charity that might be receiving
fewer donations because of the economy and/or the recent focus on Haiti. If
you are comfortable, share which organizations you donated to on our
facebook wall:

I know that for some Ripples $20 is a substantial sum of money; I suspect
you know that $10 can make a real difference in a country as poor as Haiti,
and $10 to a local charity will help them know they are not forgotten in
these difficult times. It takes only a moment, so please do what you can!

p.s. If you would like a remarkable list of Dr. King quotes from the past
12 years of Ripples, please send a blank email to the following address:
MLK [at] and please note you will need to replace [at]
with @.
