My Year of Hopefulness - All the ways you can serve

I am thrilled to see that MLK Day is being made into a holiday that celebrates and promotes service. (And it's shocking to me that all Americans do not have that day off - I hope that will change.) Seth Godin published a list of ways to give back that day, and every day for that matter, that covers a wide spectrum of time investment. By no means is it definitive - it gets the creative juices flowing. There a lot of ways to give and a lot of organizations who need the help. 

From Seth's list, I love the idea of creating a Wikipedia page for charities that we care about that may not be so well known. That's what I plan to do. I will also dig in and do some research on social entrepreneurship in the hopes that my transition to that field and to building my own business is not all that far away. I know that it's possible to do well and do good at the same time, with the same efforts, and I'm going to find a way to do that.

Good evening, Christa! Jennifer C. here again. Was browsing online volunteer opportunities earlier this weekend and came across the link below for a Social Networking Manager - made me think of you, so I thought I'd pass it along simply as an FYI. :)
