Make A Difference

Last week I talked a little bit about social activism. I talked about how something small can change someone's world. I talked about how inspiring the Ford Fiesta Movement Agents are this month while the theme is social activism. This one specifically. This has been on my heart and on my mind lately and I want to do something. With the new year (quickly) approaching, I've been brainstorming some ways I can give back.

I want to help others. In the new year I am going to be making a very special embroidery hoop. Every few months I'm going to pick a good cause or a charity and donate a portion of my embroidery hoop sales. I'm still trying to iron out the details so there will be more information when I know more. What I do know now though is that I want to make a difference, even if it's a small one.

Now, I want to hear from you! What charities or causes have a special place in your heart?

  1. I know this is probably a given being in Memphis, but St Jude is on my mind when I think of charity and giving back. Also the Susan G Komen foundation. Several wonderful women in my life have battled breast cancer.

  2. I like the Paying it Backward idea - that's beautiful. Since moving to Memphis, I've tried to give consistently to St. Jude. I also give to Ducks Unlimited (also headquartered in Memphis) for wetlands and waterfowl conservation. I know there's a lot more I can do, but it's usually just a small gift here or there. I also inquired about volunteering in town, but my job limits the time I can commit to something like that. I need to come up with a solid giving-back game plan for 2014!


I appreciate each and every comment!! I love hearing from my readers :)
