Better late than not at all

It’s taking me longer to get around the blog neighbourhood these days, and so I missed Doug‘s terrific pointer to Sarah McLachlan’s World on Fire video earlier this month. McLachlan and friends spent one tenth [correction: one tenthousandth] of a typical high-end music-biz budget to make this video, and gave the other nine-tenths (in a poetic reversal of tithing) to charities [correction: nearly nine ten-thousandths]. You can see how much was donated to what organisation here. Check out the video — it’s visually and aurally beautiful and smart, something to think about, and maybe act on, too.
[edit, 10/14: I must have been brain-dead last night, so caught up in the image of tithing that I managed to drop a few zeros… Must get more sleep!]

Go Lilith.

  1. I am so impressed – even if not eloquent enough to sing this move’s praises, as I spent the day in mind-numbing work to please some people, a few of whom, by my calculations, must be paying close to 80,000.00 in yearly taxes on their homes alone….

    Too bad Sarah McLachlan doesn’t get the kind of publicity for this as does Britteny (sp?) Spears for her bare midriff or hasty weddings….
