Help second-grader raise funds for clean water

I'm always surprised and inspired by young people who are making a difference. Here is a second-grader in our own Iowa community who is raising money to help provide clean drinking water. He is giving up his 8th birthday party and presents and asks you and me to donate to his charity: water campaign. It is a well-thought out plan and will also benefit people at the local retirement home because he is going to play the piano for them for every $100 donated. And depending on your contribution you could get a drawing. Yea Nathan! I appreciate your passion.

Take a look at his video! And check out his site to see all the details. Will you help Nathan Hidajat reach his goal? How will you make a difference today?

FreeRice: Play and Win

120_240_verticalThis is a win-win game  - FreeRice.  You get to test and increase your vocabulary, and someone hungry gets to eat. It's a fun way to increase your vocabulary and help end world hunger.

For every word you get correct, the advertisers donate 100 grains of rice. It is distributed through the World Food Programme. Through the WFP site you can also pay for whole sacks of rice. So go play and see how much you can donate.

This site was just started on October 7. What a great way to build awareness for the issue of poverty. Seems fitting for the season.

Tools and techniques for business communications.
