Four Ways To Make a Difference While Watching TV, Reading, Playing or Sleeping
With the lazy days of summer passing us quickly by, here are a few ways you can soak in the last few moments and make a difference at the same time.
1. Donate the book you just finished and buy the next one you want to read from Better World Books. For each book you buy, they will donate a book to someone in need.
2. Play the addictive online vocabulary game freerice.com. For each answer you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice to the World Food Programme.
3. Check out the newest round of reality TV, this time dedicated to serving our world—shows like Extreme Makeover Home Edition and Secret Millionaire entertain while making a difference.
4. Instead of using a regular alarm clock, why not use one that makes you donate to charity every time you press the snooze button? That’s right, it exists right here.
Tell us what crazy ways you give back while relaxing.
