A Give10 Update

Second Presbyterian Church of Chicago 
In December I jumped on board the Give10 train and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. If you missed my full explanation here, let me give you the quick and dirty. Each day the handsome hubby and I have agreed to follow the example set by Stephanie over at wanderingzito.com and give $10 to an organization that is working to change the world for the better. Initially it was to be a project that lasted throughout the month of December. But, we've enjoyed it so much we've kept it going into 2o12.

In the midst of all this giving, I've had the pleasure of discovering a whole slew of new organizations doing some pretty phenomenal work. By taking part in, what Stephanie calls, micro giving I'm able to support a plethora of causes and use my small voice to make their work known to others who might not be familiar with each organization. Using my wallet and voice are simple ways to support those who are doing the truly heavy lifting.

I bring this up today because Stephanie, my giving guru, is one week away from completing her year long Give10 project. To celebrate, she's recruiting others to join her for the last week. Sound intriguing? She was also kind enough to publish a little blurb that I wrote about how I got involved in Give10. I encourage you to head over to wanderingzito.com and maybe even jump on board the giving train! Just watch out, this micro giving is addictive stuff.
