Ooffoo Laureate

I recently discovered that I have been short-listed as a finalist in the Offoo laureate 2010 competition. Ooffoo is a fantastic online community where people can “can reuse, recycle, swap, sell, give away, write & blog, enter our latest competition, vote, debate & discuss our latest hot topic, find recipes & useful eco tips and much more.” It has done a lot to shake up my social conscience about ethical and environmental issues and I was inspired to enter their laureate competition really just to be able to voice an issue that is important to me. I was obedient in following God’s nudge to enter and something beyond what I could possibly have ever imagined happened. (I did not think in a million years that I would find myself being a finalist!). Just being listed as a finalist has boosted my confidence and given me a kind of renewed hope for the future that perhaps I really can make a difference in the world.

I suppose starting my own website is in a way a starting point to get me to document my ideas and at least voice my opinions and whether they are heard by anyone is not up to me – again it is just being obedient and letting God do the rest.
