giving happiness global impact


Social Media is an amazing tool!
Today I sat in my living room and in no time at all I was able to GIVE to 12 different organizations around the world in jut a few clicks. The wonderful world of online sponsorship. A business will make a donation to a ‘not for profit organization’ each time a person clicks on a special link.
I didn’t have to sign up.
I didn’t have to give my email address.
I didn’t even have to go to the sponsor’s website.
This is something we could all do every day. I am offering you a GIVE you could do every day for 365days. You can even keep track of the impact you make each time you click a donation.

GIVE 17 / Day 17
Today I was so exhausted from working a 17 hour day on my feet all day I just couldn’t do anything to GIVE that would take much energy. Going any further than my big leather armchair with laptop in hand while my son was napping was the best I could do. I also wanted to find a way to GIVE that wouldn’t cost me any money.( I am saving money to fly to Toronto for the Chef Challenge in which I am participating to raise money for women’s cancers.)

An organization got my attention, CARE2, a site worth spending some time on every day.
In 10 seconds I was able to help support, children, rainforests, big cats, breast cancer, pets, seals, oceans, primates, global warming, stop violence against women and wolves. Also included is a featured Daily Action – in this case a petition to bring awareness to a Hand Washing Campaign called IWASH by Unicef in Uganda.

Not only did I CLICK to GIVE but they also tell you the immediate impact you have made by clicking. If you choose to go to the site everyday, or weekly, you can track your continuing impact by signing up to the site.
One click saved 7.4 sq. ft. of rainforest today.
Two clicks protected 100 sq. ft. of ocean today.
Three clicks offset your computer’s energy use today.
As the clicks continue so does the impact continue and thereby creating an even greater impact to our world !
I really did change a part of the world today !
I love this site ! I plan to visit it with my morning coffee every day.

Time Commitment: 30 seconds
Cost: 0
Impact: Track-able every day!
