We just read a post about “how to make a difference for $5″. According to the blog, it doesn’t seem like you can do much since a gallon of milk and a fancy Star Bucks would cost you that or more. It could mean a huge difference for one of the 43.7 million refugees in the world.
A great new year’s resolution is to get involved in local charities. You can give a little volunteer time or support causes financially. Either way, giving of yourself or giving as little as $5.00 adds up if you think about the power of the 20 million college students in the good ol’ USA. If half of those students gave a 5 dollar bill to charity that adds up to $50 million. What would 30 minutes of volunteer time do?
Talk about making a difference, you and your classmates could change the lives of many people in need during 2012. Challenge your friends and classmates to rent textbooks this next semester instead of buying. Take some of the textbook rental savings and help one or several of your favorite charities.
We at CBR are fortunate to work for a CEO, Chuck Jones and his wife Sarah, who believe in giving back to thier communities. The Jones family believe they can deeply impact the lives children. When those students grow up, they will impact the lives of other children and so on.
