12: Party with a Purpose

This is the 12th in a series of (hopefully) 52 posts related to the book Every Monday Matters. I'd love it if some other people wanted to go through the book with me. Contact me if you're interested.

Dear valued podcast subscriber,

As I am sure you are well aware next Monday is Support Your Local Video Blogger Day

Being the wonderful, caring, humble video blogger that I am, I have decided to donate my day to charity.

Instead of sending me all the extravagant presents I’m sure you were planning on buying for me, I would kindly ask that you donate the money you were planning to spend on me to any of the charities listed on the second page of this letter. If only everybody could be as humble as I, think of all the good we could do.

Folks could give up their birthdays.
Couples could sacrifice their weddings.
Our planet could give up Earth Day.

Whatever the case, it is important to think of others before we think of ourselves. Giving money to charity instead of buying presents is just a small way we can Party with a Purpose and make the world a little brighter.
