Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. – Harriet Tubman
Tomorrow March 1, 2013, we will be celebrating the two-year mark for She Makes Cents! I am asking my friends, family, fellow bloggers, fashionistas, and SMC readers to empty out their pockets, clean between their sofas, and clear out their change trays. Why, you may ask?- to use their “cents” to help change the world, of course. In honor of our 2nd Blogiversary, we are hosting a “Change the World” party and you can help!
What is a “Change the World” Party?
My hope for the SMC Change the World party is that guests will bring their extra change, cash, and checks to go into a piggy bank to be donated to a non-profit of your (SMC readers) choosing. That’s right, for the entire month of March, you can send suggestions of worthy non-profits and the SMC team will pick the top 3! Once the top three choices are selected, SMC readers will vote on the recipient of whatever funds are raised at the Change the World Party. Remember, you don’t have to be rich to give back. I think about it like this. In high school, my competition cheer team did a fundraiser asking people to give the change in their pockets to help us pay for travel to our State competition. We raised $3,000 in one week! That just goes to show that even small amounts add up to big payoffs…especially for someone in need. Only submissions meeting the following criteria will be considered:
