Make a Difference
"What do you do once you're 'there'?"
Once life is not about seeking and striving
for something, what's it all about?
It's about joy!
And if you want to.... YOU Can Make A Bigger Difference!
Making A Difference Is Easy As 1, 2, 3:
- Don't get caught up in the problem. See the solution, as your Large Self does.
- Do only as much as you can while still keeping your vibration high. Budget even an hour a week to make a difference. Small consistent efforts add up tremendously.
- Keep it feeling good rather than letting it get sad, burdensome, or hard. Line up the energy first, THEN take inspired action. It's more effective, and you want to spread ease, not hardship.
Fundraising for Schools www.WeAreBedrock.com
School fundraising has been around as long as, well, schools. Wherever there are students, there are important needs not being met by our schools' dwindling budgets. Enter Bedrock. Brilliantly simple, Bedrock brings schools an online, inventory-free way to raise money:
Students sell music from emerging and established artists. Buyers download and listen on their computer, iPod or other MP3 player. That's it!
There's a win for all involved: The School/Organization is given 55% of the gross sale of each download. Musicians are paid royalties and gain exposure to a new audience. Students earn points that can be redeemed for great prizes (guitars, concert & festival tickets, clothes, iTunes cards, Visa/MC cash cards & more...) Additionally, the top selling students can win scholarships.
Just great new music for you, and fundraising goals met for schools. That's music to our ears. You click. You give. You rock!

Learn more about Microlending. They give small loans to help the poor make their own money. I've always believed more in teaching people to fish than in giving them fish, because teaching them to fish makes them independent, and it's lasting. I personally invested $500 in Microplace, a PayPal Company, because I know PayPal does things right. It's actually like letting them use your money for a while, then you can get it back after a term if you want it. I just let it be reinvested each term. I don't need the $500.
The Prem Rawat Foundation - Donate to Japan Tsunami Relief and other good causes
Prem Rawat, also known to his students by the affectionate name of Maharaji, has been dear to my heart since 1985 when I received an initiation from one of his instructors, and practiced his meditation an hour a day for 11 years. Anything this man does is in the highest integrity and power. You can donate knowing your money will go to relief, clean food and water, and education, not big bureacracy.
Want to educate kids about school violence and prevent bullying?
Discover Hope Microlending program provides loans that empower third world women to own their own businesses. When you give, they give a loan to a women that can mean the difference between poverty and self-sufficiency for her. I totally believe in microlending, because it doesn't enable people to remain powerless, or dependent upon charity -- it gives them the means to make themselves successful. The success rate and loan payback rate in these programs is huge. http://www.discoverhopefund.org/
