Wanna hear something cool that happened on a blog?

Not sure if you've ever read the blog "Stuff Christians Like". If not, then do; it's a lot of fun and inspirational as well. The site author, Jonathan Acuff, started this blog as a reaction to the popular blog Stuff White People Like.

Recently Acuff felt led to do more than just write a really funny blog. He said that he was challenged by his 6 yr old daugher who was shocked a year ago to find out that kids were starving in other parts of the world.

Acuff partnered with Samaritan’s Purse and launched a $30,000 donation drive on his blog to build a six-room kindergarten in Hoang Then village in the Phong Tho district, which is located in the northwest section of Vietnam. The school would assist more than 200 children.

It's reported that he raised the $30,000 within 18 hrs.

"Did a blog, that isn’t even based on an original idea, come together and do something much bigger than a blog?" he wrote as he gave glory to God.

You can say many things about what your wrote, but I do not consider cool to be one of them.
