You've probably been overwhelmed with online "deals" over the past week and a handful of "Giving Tuesday" options today. Everyone has a cause and an ask, but for whatever it's worth I thought I'd share a handful of organizations that mean something to me personally and that I've seen amazing work come from.
Love Does. I have always been thankful for the work that Bob, Debs, and company take part in. By providing a safe and fun environment for kids to learn in, they create future leaders who break cycles of poverty, restore hope in their communities, and spread love wherever they go.
Bro-Am Foundation. Not only are the guys some of the best guys you'll ever know, but their heart to make a difference in the lives of deserving yet underprivileged youth is so awesome.
PastorServe. PastorServe is a ministry I know, trust and personally support. This year, PastorServe is dedicating Giving Tuesday to serving Haitian Pastors impacted by Hurricane Matthew. Go to their website to find out how you can help Haitian Pastors by giving Haitian pastor couples an experience they will always remember.
Young Life. Through a handful of really important people in my life, I have learned from multiple sources how important Young Life is to introducing people to Jesus.
Show Hope. I love how Show Hope paints the message of the gospel with the story of adoption.
Preemptive Love. These people are going to really hard places and loving people anyway, regardless of circumstance.
Nations Foundation. I am a new Nations super fan. On top of donating, buy the journal!
Charity Water. I really appreciate what Charity: Water's attention to detail and care on the mission of providing clean water to people who need it on a massive scale.
I love ocean photography and it has been awesome to watch Ryan Pernofski do this thing:
- This is important work for Bob, Debs, Love Does & Jeremy, Matt, Preemptive Love Coalition. Learn about it and support:
As Blinksale continues, I am interested what David Heinemeier Hansson has to say as the founder of Ruby on Rails, the framework that Blinksale is built on. Tim Ferriss' podcast with DHH is a great way to get to know his work.
This documentary, "I Saw The Light," will be very interesting.
I get weary of tech products, but this Eclipse looks pretty sharp.
Joseph is killing it:
- Now that the Cavs and the Cubs have both won championships, the focus has shifted to San Diego as America's saddest sports city.
- A huge congrats to Aaron Lieber for winning the Surfer / RED Film Contest with "Wild." Take a look at the amazing film:
Seth's blog on fire again: "Even more valuable, though, is the person who glows in the dark. Not reflecting energy, but creating it."
My friend John Mark is competing for the USA in the 2015 World Rafting Championships, but they need our help to get there. Let's help them!

Diggin' this tune about fatherhood from Macklemore:

Check out the new Flood Coats song.
These weeks are flying by! Lacey is starting classes at her new school on Monday and I am so proud of how she is throwing every effort she has at this new job. (Super proud husband here.) I am helping her in the classroom today and I am excited to lead worship at Clairemont Emmanuel this weekend. Always fun to team up with my dad. Now, some links:
- National Geographic released the winners of their Traveler 2012 Photo Contest this week. Below is my favorite photo of the week:

Have I already mentioned how pumped I am for the new Lakers roster? Dwight Howard on top of Kobe, Steve Nash, Ron Artest & Pao Gasol?! That photo is just ridiculous.
Everyone has been watching Charity: Water since they set the bar so high in conveying what they do as an organization with their media. They released a new home page this week and they definitely met the level of clarity and simplicity they've done so well with.
It is inspiring to get a glimpse into lives of people who craft things with their hands: thosewhomake.com
This week, two of my favorite companies (Evernote & Moleskine) announced they are combining forces. I carry both of them with me essentially everywhere I go to record notes, ideas, quotes, thoughts, etc. I am interested to see how this notebook turns out.
