Day 243: Do You Know an Every Day Hero? Vote for the “Me to We” Everyday Heroes Now!

Do you know an every day hero? I love finding people who choose to give and change the world. “Me to We is a philosophy, a manual, a manifesto and a movement. It’s about finding meaning in our lives and our world by reaching out to others–thinking we instead of me.”

This is the Me to We philosophy taken directly from their site. Their philosophy “finding meaning in our lives and or world by reaching out to others” is just one of the many reasons I started 365give. Me to We has been recognizing this attribute in people for years.  Today they gave me the opportunity to give back to 6 people that all deserve a helping hand to the causes they support.

Day 243: Give 243
