DO SOME GOOD

Do some good in the world today (for free...or pretty close to free):

1. IZZE sparkling juice has a goal to raise $25,000 to help under-privileged school children in Kenya. They will donate $1 to the Global Education Fund for every fun "sparkle" message you send to your friends from now until December 31, 2010. When at least 10 of your sparkles are accepted, IZZE will send YOU a free t-shirt. Everyone wins! So start sending SPARKLES here.


2. For the past 2 years, Odwalla has made a commitment to state parks by donating money to help plant trees. It’s pretty simple: they provide the trees, and you get to decide where to plant them. Help your planet and plant a tree in YOUR STATE by clicking here.


3. There was an oil spill recently, in case you haven't heard. Procter & Gamble provides Dawn soap for free to the International Bird Rescue Research Center and its partner organizations. (Dawn is the product favored by animal rescue staff to remove oil from birds, marine mammals and other wildlife.) So, next time soap is on your grocery list, make sure to buy a bottle of Special Edition Dawn then go online to activate your donation (info at site), and $1 will be donated to wildlife conservation organizations to clean up precious animals.

4. Chase started it's Chase Community Giving Summer 2010 program on June 15. Chase is providing an opportunity for small and local organizations to build awareness of their causes on a national level AND it's allowing individuals to help direct where the donations should go through the power of the Facebook platform.
My dear friends Travis and LaRee Hansen co-founded Little Heroes Foundation in 2007. The vision of this foundation is to plan and carry out projects that improve educational, medical, and living conditions for little heroes around the world. Little Heroes is in the running for the Chase program. Take a minute when you're logged into your facebook account and vote for this charity here.
