Holy men spread awareness about global warming in Haridwar

Haridwar, Mar 5 (ANI): Holy men participating in the ongoing Kumbh Mela have come forward to create awareness about global warming.

The group of holy men, belonging to different Akharas (sects), have taken on the responsibility of spreading awareness about global warming at the fte and working towards recycling waste matter.

Mahant Ravindranand Giri of the Shri Panch Dashnam Akhara, who has been working for the cause since many years, says his job has now become easier as people are aware of the term ‘Global Warming’.

“See, the term ‘Global Wa michael kors rming’ which came from America, has been known to people only since the last four to five years, but as I have been working for the la michael kors st 28 to 29 years, I kept on saying we should save the nature and the environment. I used to work for this cause and today my work has become easier as everyone is already aware of the term ‘Global Warming’,” said Giri.

The famous holy man, Pilot Baba, however, said it is very difficult for human beings to control global warming.

“Man can michael kors bring little changes with his activities. If we stop cutting trees, they show three to four trees which have not been cut. Wha michael kors t about the hundreds of thousands of them which are cut in the forests? What about the glaciers which are melting? How will we stop them? Everybody says they will stop driving vehicles to get rid of carbon dioxide, it is not possible. The whole world will stop functioning if this is done, the whole development process will come to an end,” said Pilot Baba.

This group of holy men collects garbage, such as plastic bottles and bags, which is then sent to New Delhi for being recycled.

The aim of these holy men is to rid the world of global warming. Their efforts have brought together many people attending the fte, who are helping them in their cause. (ANI)

Holy Cross youths fill backpacks to be given this week to those in need

CHAMPAIGN Two days before Christmas break began for students at Holy Cross School in Champaign, classrooms were decked with twinkling lights, Advent wreaths and decorated trees.

But students were thinking of people who are less fortunate by stuffing backpacks filled with clothes, toiletries and other items to be given away at Daily Bread Soup Kitchen in Champaign.

“It’s our Christmas present to people at the soup kitchen,” said 10 year old Spencer Burgin, who was stuffing a backpack Monday in Mary Tate’s fourth grade classroom.

Several different classes at Holy Cross contributed to the michael kors backpacks, whether it was bringing in the items to put inside the backpacks or the bags themselves.

Among those filling backpacks were fourth graders in Tate and Gerri Bramfeld’s classrooms.

In Tate’s classroom, Spencer and his classmates spread out with their supplies on a carpet in the back of the room, in front of a faux fireplace and Nativity scene. Music from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” played on a CD player on top of a bookshelf nearby.

Tate recommended putting the bulkiest items into the backpacks first. Those included things like fleece throws and blanket michael kors s, shirts, thermals, hats, gloves and scarves.

After that, the students packed in toiletries like deodorant, to michael kors rong> michael kors othpaste, razors, tissues and shampoo. Some brightly colored backpacks for kids also included items like dolls and other toys.

Spencer said his backpack included blankets, underwear, gloves, toothpaste, razors “and a whole lotta socks.”

He also brought in shampoo, toys and crossword puzzles.

He said the garments are the most important items, because they’ll keep Daily Bread’s patrons warm.

“And actually, the backpack gives them something to carry,” Spencer said.

Holy Cross Principal Rosemary Costello estimated Holy Cross students filled more than 100 backpacks.

The backpacks varied on the grade levels putting them together.

Sixth grade teacher Judy Crull said one parent sewed zippered pouches to hold the toiletries in all the backpacks the fifth and sixth graders stuffed.

Some of their backpacks also included a bag of candy, a homemade Christmas card and paperback books.

Sixth grade teacher Jeri Roberts said parents also donated items like flashlights and reading glasses.

Not only did the Holy Cross students collect and stuff the backpacks, they’ll also deliver them in person.

It’s not unusual for the students to walk items over to Daily Bread, which operates at New Covenant Fellowship in downtown Champaign. Each week, a different group of students delivers milk and fruit for the soup kitchen, said Ellen McDowell, former president and current volunteer at the soup kitchen.

Holy Cross’ involvement is a result of Costello’s dedication to teaching the school’s students about the poor and homeless, McDowell said.

“They know they’re bringing milk and fruit for people who wouldn’t have it if they didn’t bring it,” McDowell said.

McDowell said the soup kitchen started giving away items in small paper bags years ago usually things like a comb, a toothbrush and maybe a razor with shaving cream.

The patrons’ needs grew, McDowell did, and so did the size of the gift, to a shopping bag.

“Then someone decided that if we gave them a backpack they could actually use it all year,” she said. “That began the backpack tradition.”

In the two years since the soup kitchen moved to New Covenant, organizers have started providing more bags for women and kids as more are coming to the soup kitchen.

Other groups donate, too, she said, including volunteers from Provena Covenant Medical Center in Urbana. They make and donate two large bags of knitwear things like hats, scarves and gloves.

These “really boutique things” are incredibly nice, she said.

The backpacks aren’t just about giving away stuff, she said, but about caring for the people who need them.

“We’re not an agency and we don’t pretend to be,” McDowell said. “We want to keep the atmosphere one that indicates our concern for our fellows. . The material things we’re giving out are important and are much needed, but we also want the caring to come across.”
