These simple actions will leave a positive impact on your community.

Everyone's different. Different personalities. Different goals. As with everything else, having a healthy financial life can look different for everyone. To find the budget style that's best for you, start by writing down all the elements of your finances:
The Danish are donating urine to produce beer at the Roskilde festival.
All this talk about nail polish matching our shoes -- meanwhile there are children and adults who don't even have shoes. I know that's an old and tired sentiment, but it's still true. The cliché does not take poverty away.
My mother (known in her hometown of Chattanooga as "The Purple Lady") lives by what she calls her "Purple Rules: Do unto others and for others." Give graciously and generously to help people without expecting anything in return. Her gift to me was the lesson of being a giving person and not a getting one.
For me, it boils down to this: There are plenty of other things I could do with the money I give away to effective charities each year. But can I think of anything better to do with it? No. It feels like the best possible use of my money. I'm a lot happier giving large than living large.
We live in an age in which our personal interests and activities can be tracked at scale. This enables us to understand our cultural values with a level of accuracy that would before seem unfathomable.
It's time to get rid of your television once and for all.
Give back. Sure you paid tuition and ate ramen noodles. You are on a shoestring budget, but even if it's $5, pay it forward. It will ultimately be giving to a good cause.
Unfortunately, the mid-sized donor base has reduced its nonprofit support in recent years. The good news is that there are ways to reverse this trend and prevent core donors from drifting.
Once upon a time, big philanthropy worked like this: After decades of building a great fortune (because it used to take decades), a titan of industry would create a major foundation late in life and, not long after, would pass from the scene.
Decorating the tree and shopping just seem so much more joyful when you are doing it with someone by your side. Well, I would like to share a Christmas story with you that just might warm your heart and help you see this season through different eyes.
This year, have you thought about a charitable donation? Not throwing money out into the void, hoping that some good will come of it, but giving to one of the charities that are taking the new "hand-up, not handout" approach to helping.
The similarities are striking - we've been in this place before. The past echoes in my brain and I feel as if I am sitting in my living room the day after Christmas in 2004.
We’d all love to go on a volunteer vacation, learn about the local culture and perhaps save the world. With the average American
With giving already such an abstract concept, shifting it to something that happens behind the scenes -- or at least away from the community gathering -- means we 'lose a tangible teaching moment in how we form identity.'
I believe in the saying, "It takes a village to raise a child." Let's work together to be a close-knit village, ensuring all students have the items and materials they need to be successful.
