Before I talk about this episode, do me a HUGE favor? Please go to the iTunes store, and give the show a star rating??? This is a big way to help the show’s messages grow! Thanks so much.
In this episode you’ll hear me speak about several ways YOU can get involved to help make the world a better place. The first way is by checking out Idealist. This is a website that you can type in your location, what you’d like to do to help out (volunteer, work, internship, etc.), and the website gives you a list of ways you can get involved! How cool is that?
Most folks, at least in the United States, have heard of Craigslist to buy things, but you can also find opportunities to volunteer in YOUR community at Craigslist.
It’s MOVEMBER ladies and gentleman. Haven’t you heard? Everyone is bustin’ out their goofy photos on social media and now you can help by checking out what this is all about. My brother, Adrian Trumbo, is rockin’ his ‘stache to raise money and awareness to men’s health. Join or support his team, LOS MOS LOCOS today!
I also reference to a wonderful website called Dosomething.org where you can be inspired and get involved in various ways. Just click the link and find out just how you can do just that.
If you would like to financially help with the relief efforts with the recent typhoon tragedy in the Philippines you can read this blog by Huffington Post that outlines the many organizations that are helping the disaster relief efforts.
Oprah talks about “The Secret” in this Youtube video:
I want these Friday shows to be YOUR show…..the fans, the listeners. Are you out there? My goal is that you will email me stories and examples of people who do generous things, so I can share those on the Friday episodes! People don’t always get credit for the wonderful things they do, so I want to give them “props” on Fridays.
One of the first things I spoke about in this show was the John Steward Fundraiser at the Silver Creek Lanes Bowling Alley in Silverton, Oregon. If you like bowling or want to donate things they can raffle off, contact Troy Shepard who created the “event” on Facebook.
When I talked about my friend Michelle’s family and what they do to raise money for organizations, we spoke about the Liberty House. If you click here you can learn more about what the Liberty House does in Salem, Oregon. We specifically talked about how they get together and play Minute To Win It games.
I mentioned gift cards you can give that can be spent on a charity of your choice. TisBest is the name of that company.
Lastly, I want to remind everyone again to THANK A VETERAN.
Monday, November 11th is Veteran’s Day and each and every Veteran deserves a word of appreciation for their service. I talked about where people can go for FREE FOOD on Veteran’s Day and hope you enjoy and take advantage of those deals.
PLEASE email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with stories of people you know (or even a story about yourself!) of generosity so I can share those stories on next Fridays show. I continue to have such gratitude and appreciate for all of your support. Thanks for subscribing, and I’d LOVE IT if you would give the show a star rating on iTunes and write a quick review.
