Little things have been coming up in conversations lately. I instinctively think of Saint Therese, saint of the little things. However, while I’ve petitioned her recently for a seemingly “little thing” in the grand scheme of things, this post is more about the little things we can do to make the world a better place. Most are free and/or almost effortless.
Firstly, do you click? I get a daily reminder from the Animal Rescue Site, but while I’m there, I click over to their sibling sites and click away. Every once in a while, I’ll shop there too, for even greater good. Those “wellies” may have accidentally found their way to my home. I don’t wear wellies regularly, but about twice a year, I wish I had a pair. Right now, my trendiest, cutest friends are wearing them with super-stylish dresses, skirts, leggings, and of course, they look fab over skinny jeans! I figure these will go with everything.
Do you save boxtops? Boxtops for Education is an easy way to support schools. No, I am not a teacher and don’t have a student in my home, but I have friends who teach, so MJ and I donate our boxtops to them. You can also sign up so any “online boxtops” you earn go to the school of your choice as well.
I’m on a slippery slope, because I can’t mention or link to EVERYONE with a similar program. However I encourage you to check with your local grocery stores and see if you can sign up so your reward points go to the school of your choice, and before to put that box in the recycling bin, make sure there isn’t a boxtop or some other opportunity to support a charity/your community on there.
What little things do you do to make a difference?
