Sunday Mail Column for Sunday 2 January 2010
Here we are with a fresh, shiny year in front of us. A year plump with possibility. A highway of perfect days ahead. The truth is we’re standing in the middle of a golden opportunity. Readers, I have an idea.
This year I want to bring more meaning to my life, be a part of something good. I want to help bring about change. So this year on the first Sunday of every month I’m going to ask you to join me in donating $10 to a specific cause. It might be global one month, local the next but once a month I’m going to ask you to find just $10 and give it to an organisation to help them make a difference. Ten dollars is a small amount but it’s enough to change a life.
Maybe only ten readers will join me. Maybe 100,000 readers will get on-board. But I think as a group – no matter how big or small – we can have an impact. Lets see the good we can do with ten bucks.
Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Nicholas Kristof recently said, “The best way to fight poverty and extremism is to educate and empower women and girls.”
