Philanthropy Thursday – Giving Back A Community Effort

It’s Philanthropy Thursday, here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos. Philanthropy comes in all forms, from helping someone, letting someone cut in line at the drive thru, lending a kind ear, thoughtful words. Anything you can do to better other’s lives. There are many, many charities out there that we can donate money to, and I’m not here to tell you who to chose. I just want to share inspirational stories with you about people that have been successful in their own efforts to help others.

I think it was good timing that I got an accidental post from fellow blogger, Amber West of A Day Without Sushi today. Her blog normally posts on Friday, and the links to her blog and this story will be active tomorrow.

Her idea is simple.  Give something up, blog about it, and donate money to charity.

Also, I’m going to give up Chick fil a for the month. I’m slightly addicted to their large diet cokes and waffle fries.

I’m planning on making my donation to MAKE A WISH…for those of you that want to Text your donation to them, it’s easy!

Just text WISH to 90999 to donate $5 to their cause!! And be sure to click the link above to go to Amber’s Blog to see lots of other great causes that are easy to donate to!

Philanthropy Thursday. This is something that I’m really excited about, but may take a bit to get going, so bear with me. If you are a Chi O active, alumni chapter, or anyone who is doing something to give back to the community in some way, I would love to share your fundraising successes on my blog. I also offer up my own book, That Boy, for you to consider using as a fundraiser. The book retails for $9.99. Your group will earn $8 per book sold. Please email me at ThatBoyJillianDodd (at) gmail (dot) com, if you are interested!
