Making a Difference…because It Matters!

Sherpa Sense:

“If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.” Dalai Lama

We all care deeply about something in this world.  Maybe, it is the ocean cleanup, saving the whales, the little boy next door with leukemia, grandma’s Alzheimer’s disease, housing the homeless, etc.  Making a difference is what makes humanity human. Contributing to a cause is making a difference in our own small way. #itmatters

Let’s Yak:

Every community has service projects available and with social media we are exposed to many more globally. Simple small acts by many people add up to big results.

  • Nonprofits, such as St Vincent DePaul Society, have programs in place for helping and feeding the homeless.
  • The local library has programs for reading or sorting through book donations.
  • There are 5k runs supporting breast cancer or other diseases.
  • The animal shelters require volunteers to walk and care for animals.
  • Recycling can make a big difference in your community.
  • Donating your unused business attire to women and men reentering the workforce is a worthy cause.

These are just a few ideas to get you thinking.  Remember a few years ago when it was trendy to buy and wear a rubber bracelet with some cause on it? The causes are still there just waiting for you to help out.

Take a Hike:

Ask yourself where your charitable thoughts are directed and get involved through your time or donations to support your cause. Talk to your friends, family and co-workers about your cause. Making a difference doesn’t have to be overly time consuming or expensive. Remember, every little bit helps. Take a step today.

Yakety Yak:

Knowing someone with a disease is a cause near and dear to our hearts.  We choose to get involved with our time, talent and money, because we care about this person and want them in our lives for as long as possible. What you do matters to them and can help many others too.
