Worldwide Day Of Giving

“Wherever a man turns he can find someone who needs him.”

  — Albert Schweitzer

What would it take for you to make a difference …

… today?

Only you can answer that.

I tried something different tonight to choose where my $10 would go. I posted on Facebook that I’d donate $10 to the first person to respond to my post would get that money donated to a charity of their choice. I was happy when my friend Ryan chose the Wounded Warriors Project.

I was happy because my $10 went to a worthy cause. I was also happy because I wasn’t familiar with this charity so I learned about a great organization as well.

Whenever I give, it’s especially gratifying when I can meet someone that is doing good work in the community or learn of a new-to-me organization doing good work. It’s reinforcement of my belief that there is vastly more good in the world than bad.

It’s not too late to donate $10 to a charity of your choice in honor of the World Wide Day of Giving.

Today’s gift of time … Played a little free rice, played a game of Settlers of Catan with my son and his friend. Also, donated $10 to the Wounded Warriors Project.
