Put into practice

Original post made by Ted Rudow III, MA, Palo Alto High School, on Dec 13, 2013

There's never been a time in all of history when the world has been in such sin and sorrow as it is now. There's so much talk about the advancement and betterment of mankind -- advanced medicine, modern technology, new inventions, better governments to make it a better world to live in -- so much talk of progress, when in reality things are regressing all the more. Look around. You can't deny it.

The sad fact is that technology advances far, far faster than human morality. We need to slow down with technology now and then to give that morality a chance to catch up.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
