365give launched on a simple premise: One person wanted to create positive change in a world; One person wanted to leave a legacy of giving; One person wanted to create a movement that would mobilize people to give back every day of their lives.

365give is simply an online diary of one woman’s actions and impact in changing the world every day for 365days.
365give has the potential to create a movement of giving and a community of committed “givers” that can educate and inspire future generations.

But for this to really make a difference – I need you.

Imagine if everyone did one thing everyday for the next 365 days.

We would be the change, we would have a better world.

Hi my name is Jacqueline and I’m an addict – to giving. My husband tells me that I just don’t know how to say no to people. I think Oprah did a show on this topic once. I have decided to take my addiction and turn it into something that will help change the world one day at a time. I’m not a millionaire, I’m not a writer, I had never been into Twitter before, or Facebook, or YouTube and this is my first blog. What I do have is a passion for giving and I have a 3- year old little boy that inspires me to make the world a better place.

Some days it will be as simple as taking a few minutes to give a friend an ear or a hug, some days a homeless person a coffee and bagel or a kind word. Some days it may be picking up garbage in the local park and some days its volunteering my time at a soup kitchen.

Giving comes in all shapes and sizes. Some GIVES are really big and some GIVES take just a few minutes of our time.  I recently told a friend I wanted to change the world and he had a good chuckle. He asked me if I could make my goal any bigger. I told him I wouldn’t be alone, if I do one thing every day and you do one thing every day and everyone does just one thing every day, we’ve done it. We have changed the world. So, I know I’m not alone out there. I know there are other people wondering how they can make a difference in the world.  So do this with me. Make the commitment to give. I will share with both the simple things and the tough things I do every day. I will add links to organizations that may interest you and ideas on ways you can give as well.
