100 Ways to Make a Difference
What would happen if you actually set aside time in 2015 to make a difference in the world?
I’m not talking creating the cure for alzheimers or ending worldwide hunger (though hot damn! if you’re so inclined).
No, what I’m talking about is actually putting your actions where your words are.
So many of us, myself included, talk the talk about wanting to volunteer, to give our time, money, prayers, resources to those in need. And yet . . . we don’t.
Come December, we’re super keen to donate to end-of-the-year campaigns, to hand out food to the homeless or give back in other ways. And though I will never say anything negative about someone who wants to give back, I DO think that there is a way to incorporate doing so in a more on-going and sustainble way.
Why? Because the holidays only come around once a year. And there are more issues in our communities that can be solved in one or two days around the holidays. What if you gave of yourself every single month? What if you made this part of your life, just like showering, drinking 8 glasses of water a day, or working out? I believe you can do it. I believe I can do it. I believe we can ALL do it.
So I’m going to challenge you to do ONE THING EACH MONTH for 2015, that gives back to someone, to your community or to an organization doing good work in the world.
To help jumpstart some brainstorming around what you can do, I’ve curated a list of 100 ways you can make a difference. And this is just the beginning. Have other ideas? I’d love to hear them in the comments below!
Here’s to giving back throughout 2015 and making this a year that we can all be proud of!
