I have $1.00
- Go get one of those old stained coffee mugs sitting in the back of your kitchen cabinet. Put the $1.00 in it, and put the mug on your desk. When you have $5.00 come back and check out that page. (Giving $1.00 on the internet doesn't work so well because it's hard for the whole amount to end up in the cause's pocket. So hold on to it for now and accumulate more.)
- Put the dollar in your pocket. Next time you see a child with a lemonade stand, buy one and make his/her/their day. Maybe there's someone fund-raising locally outside your supermarket or downtown. Go ahead and buy a cookie, brownie, raffle ticket. Too many times we just walk on by, but if you've allocated a dollar already, you don't have to think. Just do it.
- Buy a button and wear it to support a cause. Don't just wear it. Know about it—so if someone asks, you can explain. Buy your button locally or check out Etsy and do a search for buttons there.
- One Dollar, One Meal. Sounds simple, right? And if you've guessed that a dollar won't buy a meal in the United States, you're correct. But your dollar WILL buy a meal for a blind Vietnamese child. It's easy to donate through the Global Giving website. Just click here.
