Making a Difference…

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” -Gandhi

untitled (47)Hey y’all! I’ve decided that instead of posting once a week, I’m going to try to post twice a week – Sundays and Wednesdays. Today’s post is going to be about how you can make a difference in the world. I think a lot of people believe that in order to really make an impact, you need to be able to do something big. You don’t need millions of dollars to help people, y’all! The way I see it, it’s a combination of smaller things that have the potential to make a difference. untitled (48)

Something I use as a tool for making a difference is an app called Charity Miles. It’s a free app that donates money to a charity of your choice when you walk, run, or ride a bike. I run year-round (which adds up to a lot of miles!), and it’s so rewarding to finish a run and know that you just supported a charity! It’s also really simple to like a page on Facebook that is helping a great cause, such as an organization or project. The Seabin Project and PETA are just two examples. You can also volunteer! I am currently doing volunteer work for the Max Michael Rosenfield Foundation, which is a foundation dedicated to helping kids have happy childhoods. There are plenty of opportunities for volunteer work in every community. My last tip, aimed for those of you in school, is to start a club. I’m currently working on establishing a club at my school, which I’m planning to call The Breakfast Club. It’s inspired by themes in the movie, including the individual versus society. We all have the potential to make a change!
