The GOOD 30-Day Challenge: Creative Microphilanthropy

I first became aware of MicroPhilanthropy about a year ago and have been following the area since then.  It is a great way to help others – even if you don’t have a lot of money that you can part with at the present time.  It’s also a great way to get your children involved and teach them about philanthropy.

Get creative & have some fun!!!!

I hope you enjoy this article.  Let me know.

=========================================

Welcome to The GOOD 30-Day Challenge (#30DaysofGOOD). Each month, we challenge ourselves to improve the world around us—and our own lives. The challenge for December? To give away $30 (total for the month, not every single day) in the most creative and inspiring way possible. It doesn’t have to be $30. It could just be $10. Or even a single dollar. We’re aiming to make giving more creative and personal.

Pop quiz: when you hear the word philanthropist, who comes to mind?

For most of us, it’s someone like Bill Gates, striding through an African village, smiling at cute kids. Or maybe Bill Clinton sitting on a stage, flanked by a couple of much-celebrated social entrepreneurs.

In fact, according to a study by the Women’s Philanthropy Institute, the Americans who give away the biggest proportion of their own income are women who make $23,509 or less a year, not ridiculously wealthy white dudes named Bill. Philanthropy isn’t just multimillion-dollar checks and large-scale public health interventions. It’s also small acts of care, creativity, and a dollar donation equivalent to forgoing a fancy lunch.
