I've written before about how easy it can be to make a difference. There are opportunities everywhere for volunteering. You can give forty hours a week or five minutes a year. It's up to you.
There's an office supply store that has TV commercials featuring an easy button. We all wish our lives had an easy button. Well, here's one for you:
You'll find these easy buttons in a variety of colors. There's a melon-colored button that feeds the hungry, a pink one that pays for mammograms for women that can't afford them, a salmon button that buys books for literacy programs, a green one that protects rain-forests, a purple button to help feed shelter animals, and this blue button that provides free medical care for children.
Clicking any of these links will take you to the Click to Give site. Each of the above causes has a tab that will take you to that particular easy button.
