I recently created Share & Tell Wednesday as an opportunity for people who follow my facebook page (or blog) to help promote anything they care about. From personal creations (pages, blogs, business, art, projects…), to any good causes people want to draw attention to.
Comments & links that are shared on my facebook page also get posted to my blog.
Blog subscribers who are not on Facebook are welcome to leave comments & links any time I post the Share & Tell Wednesday image (below).
All I ask in exchange for promoting whatever it is you want to promote is to consider visiting, following, or sharing any of the links that others provide. In this way, we can all help make a difference.
Note: Because I compile the comments from my page on late Wednesday (or sometime on Thursday), they are not posted to my blog until Thursday, which means they are not mailed to subscribers until Friday. So that’s why you may be seeing this for the first time on Friday.
ABRIDGED COMMENTS (please see the original comments here):
Juliet Koss: Adopt shelter pets and please spay and neuter.
Liz Beth: I believe in random acts of kindness. People don’t get it often enough, I think. It doesn’t take a lot to set one in motion. As they say, “What goes around comes around”, so why not make it in the form of kindness to one another? It’s priceless and it makes you feel good.
I was drawn to this video on my newsfeed yesterday.
Judy August: Chicken Noodle Soup: Soothing scratchy throats & stuffy heads since….well, a long, long time ago.
Carleen Newcomb: St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital. Helping children from around the world.
Catherine Baldwin: I helped my friend set this charity up to raise money and to raise awareness of Type 2 Diabetes. Her husband died in Dec last year from complications arising from Type 2 Diabetes and her aim is to prevent others from the same tragic suffering. It can be prevented and it can be reversed. We’ve achieved a lot so far and raised £18k since June – lots more still to do – and we’ve gained lots of local support. Please follow us on FB, The Michael Green Foundation.org, and Twitter @The_MGF
Sara Kraft Onstine: “At Modest Needs, we empower members of the general public to make small, emergency grants to low-income workers who are at risk of slipping into poverty.”
I love this idea of helping people who just need a little boost to get them through a rough time. You can donate to the general fund, or search through all the stories to see if there’s one that speaks to you. https://www.modestneeds.org
Angela Cook: I am a supporter of Cambodian Children’s Trust. My good friend Cindy is bringing music to the experience of some of the 300 families CCT supports. Drums in Cambodia by cynditan (http://www.pozible.com/project/33556)
Jordan N. Brooks: I’ve been volunteering with In My Shoes since 2006 (they have been around longer). They are the only agency of their kind and it is truly amazing the help they provide to youth in foster care with only TWO people on the staff.
