You know how most of us have the desire to do things to make our lives, our communities, our planet better? We see inspiring stories and think “I wish I knew what to do!” Thanks to more and more people being creative, and more sites like this one, there is more and more that we can do to make differences. I see more volunteering opportunities in my city as time goes on, in many capacities. I truly believe that there is a shift in how we collectively think. I know more people who believe we are all connected, all impact each other, and all need each other.
So if you have been wanting to do something recently that helps another human, check out my friend Rhonda’s blog post. She needs us to write letters. Email, fax, snail mail! Walk into your local MP’s office and ask them what they know about CIC’s investigations into South Africa. Read about it all here. Check the history of Rhonda’s blog for the wonderful referral story.
And if you have a spare few bucks left over from going out, under your couch cushions, or in your car, how about helping some high school students in Ethiopia get access to better science equipment. This is one of those projects that seems small, but has long lasting and far reaching impacts. Check it out!
