Yes, it is true. There are so many ways you can make a difference in someone else’s life, thereby making a personal difference in your own life. If you look on my blog under Places You Should Know About, I have listed some organizations which I feel are worthwhile – organizations making progress, even by small increments, to help those in need. It seems to me that in our bustling world, in our own communities, we can be caught up in the woes of the current economic crisis, the negative news which bombards us. Take a step back, and look at the opportunity for YOU to make a difference. I am a firm believer that one person always has, always can, and always will make a difference. Even $25, or smaller, can be significant to a struggling entrepreneur in impoverished circumstances elsewhere in the world, to a public school teacher who needs extra supplies for a class project, to a mother who needs medication for her children. Please look at Kiva, Wish Upon A Hero, Donors Choose, and the other worthwhile organizations I have listed. Every person is valuable. We cannot afford to lose anyone. It really is true – when you give, you receive so much more in return! Try it! You’ll like it!
