A Little Challenge from Mom


Don't think you can change the world?

I submit that you can, and as such, I have a little challenge for each and everyone who reads this.

It's a little something I like to call your "minimum wage"; in other words, it's the least you can do and still help make the world a better place.

All you have to do is begin by undertaking the following every month: Either volunteer one hour a month or donate one hour's wages (preferrably pre-tax) to your favorite cause or charity. It's really that simple.

Then, once you've gotten used to doing so, take things up a notch. Instead of once a month, do it once a week. Before you know it, you'll have created a habit that can last a lifetime, and it won't even hurt!

In the process, you absolutely will help change the world, and I'm even willing to bet that it may just change your perspective, if not your disposition to boot! Heck, you never know. . . You may just end up finding yourself doing more than you than is outlined above, and *committing* other random acts of kindness!

And in the meantime, be sure to pass the idea along.

As they say, a little "chicken soup for the soul" goes a long, long way.
