“It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
On Tuesday The Globe And Mail came to our hotel room. I didn't get a chance to read it, but I was so intrigued by an article that I brought it home and read it last night.
The article was titled, The young and the tireless and was about kids and teens who take social action to a seriously high level.
These young adults are inspiring. They have found a passion and poured their hearts into them. A couple of them have made over $100,000 for their foundations. Makes me wonder what I can do.
“We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.”
A month or so ago I increased the ads on my blog. I had made just over $1.38 in the 6 months prior to that and I wasn't happy about it! My blog isn't meant to be about making money, but people are reading, so I figure if companies want to pay me for the traffic that clicks on their ads, why wouldn't I take their money? As I said right from the start, I don't need money, but I know The Saskatchewan Children's Hospital could definitely use it and all money made here will go to their foundation.
In November I made $3.63 and it looks like my total for December will be over $5 (but Adsense won't have a finalized summary for a few more days). I am extremely pleased. If I can write The Saskatchewan Children's Hospital a cheque for $50 from money paid to me by Adsense this time next year I will be very happy.
“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
I really do want to do more, but I am going to have to think more on a way that isn't just something to do so I "have a cause". I want to do something I am passionate about. Hmmmm. . .
“What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”
This seems like the perfect place to start.
