Gandhi led more than 100,000 people on the "Salt March," a non-violent campaign in which the protesters made their own salt from the sea, an illegal act under British rule, as it avoided paying colonial taxes. This civil disobedience inspired millions of common folks to change the world - and here we connect you to similarly inspiring ideas, projects, and people working for real and lasting change.
God does not abandon us but instead chooses to enter into our suffering, promising a new word of life - and we are called to proclaim the good news through solidarity with all in need. With that in mind, SALT introduces you to an amazing organization that - through research, prevention, care, treatment programs, and advocacy - works to free children from HIV in Rwanda and throughout southern Africa. When we stand in hopeful, active solidarity with HIV+ children, we become bearers of resurrection life!
The basis of baptism is water, grace-filled water. With that in mind, let us introduce you to an inspiring organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Because water - grace-filled water! - changes everything.
When we bless, we are challenged to be the agents of the very change we seek. In that spirit, let us introduce you to an organization that is helping millions of school-age children around the world infected by parasites that harm their health and limit their participation in school - together we can bless, become a blessing, and plan more "backpack blessings" around the world!
God says through the mouth of Amos: “Do you know what I want? I want justice, oceans of it. I want fairness, rivers of it. That’s what I want. That’s all I want (Amos 5:24, The Message). With that in mind, let us introduce you to an organization of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ that is helping God bring oceans of justice and rivers of fairness to the ends of the earth! From micro-lending in the Congo to building a theological library in Haiti, this organization is bringing the mountains down low.
Making thoughtful, prayerful, everyday decisions can be an important step towards a sustainable future - for our households, for our neighborhoods, and for all of creation. In that spirit, let us introduce you to a powerful organization that makes participating in positive change an easy, rewarding part of everyday life.
