Day 252: Can You Give $1.00? Can $1.00 Change the World?

$1.00 Canadian. Can $1.00 Change the World. You bet and find out just how that $1.00 can positively change the world.

Have you got $1.00 to give? Just 1. It’s all it takes to change the world. What if I gave $1.00, you gave $1.00, your bother gave $1.00 and we kept passing it along? We tweeted it, Facebooked, even did a You Tube feature on just a $1.00 donation so that everyone in the world – when they could afford it – gave just $1.00. All of a sudden with just a small donation the world would change. How many billions of dollars would be donated every year to causes that truly need our help. I have the answer for you right here.

Day 252: Give 252


It’s the answer. One word, one click, $1.00. I came across Philanthroper early in my giving journey and tried to give my $1.00 but because I was Canadian and didn’t have a US chequing account I wasn’t able to. But now that has changed and I donated my first $1.00 today. Philanthoper is a daily deal site but they aren’t selling a thing. Instead they are featuring a new not-for-profit organization that for just $1.00 you can help. I love this quote “We’re trying to make doing good a habit”

For the next few days I am going to share with you what the daily “give” is on Philanthroper so you to can make doing a good a daily habit.

Today’s deal was a $1.00 to the American Humane Association. Their focus is on two of the most vulnerable groups in the world, children and animals. Why this focus?

“They’re the most vulnerable members of society,” explains Michelle Howard, Child Welfare Training and Technical Assistance Specialist.

For children they “prevent and respond to child abuse and neglect. They work to build strong families and safe communities where children can thrive.”
For animals they “speak up for those who can’t, as they tirelessly work to ensure the well-being of pets, animal victims of disasters, animal actors, and farm animals.”

My dollar was donation 122 today. So my dollar is now part of a $122.00 donation. It works that easily. One small donation along with your small donation adds up every day.

What will it be tomorrow? Stay tuned and get your dollar working for others. Do you have an idea for a $1.00 donation? Send us a comment so we can make doing good a habit!
