Together Let’s Do Something Selfless for the World Today

I randomly had the thought of donating $10 to a charity of my choice. But then I paused and thought, there is more power in numbers, in community. So I decided to write this short blog post to hopefully inspire some others to do the same today. How cool of a chain reaction would it be if everyone who read this blog post donated $10 to a charity of their choice and then shared this with just 1 friend + they donated too! Surely we would make some kind of positive impact on the world today!

Today I donated $10 to Women for Women International. It is an organization that helped nearly 429,000 marginalized women in countries affected by war and conflict. They directly work with women in 8 countries offering support, tools, and access to life-changing skills to move from crisis and poverty to stability and economic self-sufficiency.

I’m passionate about this topic because I cant even imagine the challenges these women are facing when they are affected by war & conflict. I feel SO blessed with the life I have. I get to make a living doing what I love, I live in a safe community, have a spacious home to live in, and I even have the opportunity to CHOOSE what I eat. Partially why I’m working so hard at a young age to create a successful business is so that I can grow it to a point where I’m able to use 10% of my annual income to help the world in some way. I strongly feel it will be something along the lines of helping empower women who have a low quality of life or are dealing with feeling like they are a slave to something or someone.

If you’re not quite sure which charity you would like to donate to, I asked my Facebook friends “What charity are you passionate about?” and I got a bunch of great recommendations that are close to the hearts of friends and even some of my clients!
