Happy New Year!

I just wanted to wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year. Sadly, I know this will not be the case for everyone.

I’ve been reading the post by Rebecca Sparrow in today’s Sunday Mail and she’s put forward a brilliant idea. On the first Sunday of every month she is going to nominate a very worthy cause and ask everyone to donate $10 to it.

It could be global one month and local the next, but once a month she is asking you to find just $10 and give it to an organisation to help them make a difference.

Most of us can afford $10 a month, it’s a small amount but if enough people do it, it can make a real difference and even change someone’s life. This month she has nominated www.onethousand.org and you can read more about it in today’s Sunday Mail.

So come on everyone let’s change someone’s future today, I think it’s a great idea and I for one will gladly participate. I encourage everyone else who can afford $10 a month, to follow suit as well.

Thank you Rebecca for inviting us all to be a part of your venture, if we all join together and help, imagine how many life’s we can change today.

OK, I’m off right now to donate mine, how about you?

  2. Sounds like a plan, and sounds great... especially as I have decided to be a "philanthropist" this year. :)

  4. Hello! I don't personally know any of you but I wanted to thank you for supporting my First Sunday Club idea. It means a great deal to me.
