Be the change you wish to see in the world.

I realized I have already asked my readers for money once this year and I would never do it again if it was not a cause close to my heart.

During my last semester at George Mason University, I had the opportunity to work on one of the most important projects I will ever encounter. It was a sustainability plan for a real town in Cambodia. This was the only project I ever worked on in school that actually made a difference in the world. Whether or not my group’s project was eventually chosen or not I did not care, we were all working to make the world a better place.

Since then I have kept an eye on the Blog of Kari Grady Grossman the one who started it all. You can read her blog or purchase her book (Bones that float) here

Today on the blog Kari is asking for donations to help 11 of her students go to school for an entire year. Each student needs only $150. That’s only $1650.00 for all of them.

I plan to give, but what I’m thinking is that with a little bit of outreach we can give big.

What if we raise the full $1650? Or at least try. Should I stand outside of the grocery store? Have a bake sale? Just throw a party and ask for donations? What do you think?

Tell your friends and families, I know your readers know a lot of people, post on Facebook, blog or tweet about it. Let’s make the world a better place through education.

If you wish to send your donation through “network for good” just use the link above, but please post a comment telling us that you donated, and if you are comfortable in divulging how much you are donating, I would love to know. If you would prefer to send me your check or cash and I can send it all to Kari at once make checks out to Sustainable Schools International, and leave a comment with your e-mail, I will send you my address.
