Day 340: Kick Starting Gen Y to be the Change in the World

25 days left of giving every day for 365 days so we can be the change our world need to see.

Some days I wonder what I can possibly come up with that will be a new and inspiring way to give. Then some wonderful giving idea hits me via Facebook or Twitter. This inspiration arrived as an invitation via Facebook to attend a video launch.  I missed the launch time but I went and viewed the video. It has inspired me to give today and I think it may inspire you as well.


Day 340: Give 340

Generation Waking Up has a clear purpose: “A global campaign to ignite a generation of young people to bring forth a thriving, just, sustainable world.”

Gen Y inspiring and teaching other Gen Yer’s on how they can become leaders in their own communities to be the change the world needs. I have always said it will be the next generation that creates great change in our world and Generation Wake Up is proof of this.

But every not for profit organization needs support to get a kick start for their campaign. Today I have decided to support Generation Wake Up with a contribution to their Kickstarter Campaign. Start up funds are needed to increase their reach and continue their campaign with the tools they require to reach the most people.

If you are not familiar with Kickstarter it is worth a look. They are the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. If you have a creative project you need funding this is a great place to go to use the power of crowdfunding to get your project off the ground.

Today I made a contribution to Generation Waking Up because they are empowering the next generation to get away from the “me” factor that has been inbred in us since birth and create a brain shift to be inclusive and be the change makers of the world.  An all inclusive world that works together to create the change that is needed across our planet.

Someone has to change the world – why not our children? Take a few minutes to read and watch what Generation Wake Up is doing and consider supporting their mission.
