A word from Dr. Stafford

When Dr. Wess Stafford, president and CEO of Compassion International, heard about OYWO, he jumped right in to help!  He posted this comment on April 8th at http://oneyearwithoutcoke.blogspot.com/2009/04/clarification.html#comments:

“Also starting on Monday, April 13th I’d like to align myself with this clever and courageous idea! It should be intolerable to us who have so much, that anywhere in the world mothers are compelled to feed their children dirt. I want to join this cause by giving up stuff that is robbing the poor . . . like cacao. Goodbye to chocolate candy bars, hot chocolate and my favorite, chocolate chip cookies. Now that is a HUGE sacrifice!”

Since then, he’s also gotten rid of all sodas, too…my, does he lead by example!  Thanks Dr. Stafford!!!
