Speak Up - Speak Your Mind
You say you're not finding enough Cassidy on your television, video shelf or CD rack? Let the powers-that-be know that there's an audience. Each letter or e-mail makes a difference. If we all raise our voices, we will definitely make an impact. The same applies to other causes. In this apathetic society, even one letter can accomplish more than you would believe. Use the list of industry contacts and causes needing your support. Not everyone will like or approve of every selection (and because they are listed here in no way implies the support of the Cassidy family). Rather, this page is meant to be a springboard for involvement. Since we tend to be such a diverse group, an equally diverse selection of opportunities are listed for you consideration. Just let us know who you contacted and what happened on the feedback board.
Writer Michele Orecklin wrote an article about David's Message To The World project for Kosovo kids and then slammed him saying the bad news was that the song was written by David himself. It was an unnecessary slam for someone who cared enough to lend a hand. Tell her what you think! E-mail Michele Orecklin/Time editors

Lend Your Voice - Lend A Hand
Cassidy Fans Working Together To Make A Difference For The Family - And Beyond
Over the years, the Cassidy family, as a whole and independently, has not hesitated to step forward and lend a hand to several worthy medical and social causes. As fans, we have supported the Cassidys with the way we have also generously donated our time and effort to help others less fortunate than ourselves. Indeed, we have come to be known not only for the way we support the family, but for the way we extend ourselves to each other and the world. This page is for those of you who want to get involved and make a difference -- no matter howmuch freetime you have. Some of these are as easy as an e-mail while other options might require (gasp) a stamp and that archiac instrument: a pen. Some may need economic support as well. There should be something here for everyone no matter how much time you have or the size of your bank account. Find your comfort level. Pick what you like. Do what you can.

Share Your Experiences In The Helping Hands Feedback Forum
Make A PledgeIf you wish, make a pledge to help. Perhaps a pledge to contact three of these listings - or five - or even more. Perhaps a pledge to contact one a month - a week - or even a day. This is by no means a requirement - just a suggestion for those who are interested and we promise no one will check up on you. Make it to yourself or let us know and we can post it. You can even share your accomplishments an experiences on the feedback board. Regardless of whether or not you pledge, remember that one e-mail can speak volumes. You can make a difference.
Feed The ListIf you have an idea or a cause you'd like to add, let me know and use the add URL function. All additions are subject to approval, but there's no reason this list can't grow and evolve to reflect who we are as fans - together and on our own. Thank you.
