I was recently inspired when I read a book called "Do One Nice Thing." The author, Debbie Tenzer, decided that making a difference in the world doesn't have to be difficult, complicated, or expensive and decided to do just one nice thing a week -- on Mondays. I loved this concept. I was inspired by all of her stories and ideas of simple things each of us can do to make this a better place. I decided the one nice thing I can do is to start this blog.
There are so many good causes and organizations worthy of our attention. There have been so many times I have thought,...."I would love to help with this," or "I would love to be involved in that," but sometimes I feel overwhelmed and quite frankly can't find the information easily enough. I have come across organizations or ideas for service in magazines that I wish I could remember, but forgot as soon as I set the magazine down. I have also struggled feeling like I can't do everything, so where do I start? Often times, I haven't known who to talk to, where to go, how to make some of these things happen.
My hope for this blog is that it will be a place to start.
A place where I can share ideas, resources and information to make it easier to get started. I'm hoping it will be a place to collect and share inspiration.
I hope it will be a place where you can easily find something good to do.
Together, perhaps we can gather all of our goodness and make a difference.
