Do you have that ‘thing’?

Do you have that thing… that sets you apart from others?

We all know people who are electric and find ways to get everyone else excited about their cause. Some people adore collies and  support their local humane society. Some people want free breakfast programs, recycling, college grants, clean water, higher wages, or to eliminate hunger and on and on. Depending on where a person has been, is now, or will be – you can also find something they stand for and support.

Want to help our veterans get off the street and into a warm bed? Maybe you want a day care center in your community or help a village get clean water?

Betty Londergan lost her job and started feeling frustrated with her life. So she did something outrageously bold and gave away $100 each day to a different cause. Now she looks back at that year with awe and wonder. She learned so much, met so many people and now wants to get out and visit these places – some nearby and many far away.

We all know people who give quietly and donate time and services and want nothing in return. By staying anonymous they are missing the opportunity to become a role model to other in their family, community and organization.

Givers are all around – they pick up trash, coach our children, help build houses, organize events, bake cookies … If you believe in something, you need to ACT.

What have you done?

I’d love you to drop me a comment and tell me about your cause.
