The Dollar Affect

There has been a lot in the news about recently about America’s financial situation, something about falling off a cliff, but today’s blog is about a much more simple American idea.

Shawna Wood has set up a not for profit organization, with a simple plan to get every US Household to donate a dollar a month, to help bring about positive change in the US and around the world, see I told you it was easier to understand than the other reasons the dollar has been in the news.

Now $1 can’t really get you much but of course if you add lots of dollars together you are able to support lots of charities, as shown on the dollar affect site. click here to see what charities they have supported

As if that wasn’t enough good work to be getting along with Shawna has also started a random acts of kindnes movement, which I am sure previous YDIR winner, Life Vest Inside (click to go back to the story) would appreciate. You can view Shawna committing random acts of kindness on her you tube channel. I love the idea but honestly struggle to watch the videos, I think it is because I am British and approaching strangers feels so unnatural that even watching some else do it, makes me feel very uncomfortable!

I don’t think I could do what you do, but Shawna Wood, You’re Doing It Right!
