What Have You Done Today?

It's an easy question- I've gone shopping, went for a walk, changed/fed/played with the baby... but what have I really DONE?  Have I changed the world?  Made a difference?   Those things are all so hard....

Or are they?  In this world of technological advancement, we can make a difference without getting out of our chairs.

  • 'Like' a charity page on Facebook to help spread awareness
  • Donate online  
  • Email a company who uses unethical manufacturing practises or harms the environment.  
  • Contact your state MP about improving your local area. 
  • Champion a local cause or create your own.  My daughter and I are discussing how to make her school more environmentally aware, through things like the nude food policy- more on that later!  
  • Research ways to live more sustainably and reduce your carbon footprint.  
  • Learn- you can sign up to newsletters and follow topics or websites so you can be more informed about the world around you.  
  • Find a charity- use the amazing resource in front of you (your computer) to find a charitable organization that reflects your passions and beliefs, and promote them where you can- use Facebook and other social networks, email friends to raise awareness and research ways to get involved with the work they do.  You might even find yourself inspired to hold a fund raising event!

You never know- sometimes the smallest thing can make its way around the world and make the biggest difference!

Perhaps the most important thing I forgot to mention is: involve your kids! Talk to them on a level they understand about what you are doing and why. Brainstorm for ways they can help out or help them find a cause for themselves. Some schools are more than willing to get involved too! This not only gives them something to do on the weekend, it can lead to some great life experiences!
