Have you heard about the One Dollar Give project? Today is December 4th, and the Christmas season is upon us in full force, with shoppers going about their business in search of Christmas gifts for loved ones.
I love Christmastime and it’s my favorite time of year. I’m not immune to getting caught up in the hustle and bustle (commercialism) of the holiday season and you can bet the stores love me for it. The holiday season is also a time of year where I look for a variety of ways to give back by making donations to good causes and charities.
When I published the article about Christmas toy donations for needy children, I had no idea there would be more people in need of donations reading that article vs. the number of people who have read the article with the desire to donate to those less fortunate than themselves. People and charities and hurting and there’s something we can do about it.
The One Dollar Give, found at www.onedollargive.com, was launched on December 1st and it’s mission is to shine a bright light on a blogger’s favorite charity each and every day during the month of December. Readers are encouraged to donate just one dollar a day for each featured charity for a total donation of just $31.00.
Just think of all the good that can be accomplished if we each donate just one dollar a day during the month of December to the One Dollar Give project. How much difference can $1.00 make? A huge difference in the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.
The economy is bad and charities are in serious need of support, so I’m asking you to join me in supporting the One Dollar Give project by donating a dollar a day to the project to help those in need during the month of December.
If you are unable to help financially and you have a blog, you can still show your support by grabbing the button on the One Dollar Give sidebar and placing it on your own blog, or talk about the project on Twitter along with a link for others to get involved.
Even though it’s already the 4th of December, I’ve pledged the full $31.00 and I hope you will find a way of supporting this great cause as well. Remember, there is greater joy in giving than there is in receiving.
