small change

i'm part of a group called small change. the premise is to make some small change each day, each week, each month, ....and the see the difference it can make to others.

a cool idea i just heard of - each holiday, let's say mother's day, do something for your mother - of course - but do something for another mother as well. ie: at mornings with you can find a catalog of needs for mothers in afghanistan, not manicures and such, more like an ultra sound or prenatal care, check it out. or you can just send a card by clicking here. for each card - a mother will receive a free prenatal visit.

imagine how the world would change - if we all did that.

just one small change.
