The Give List

try kindness!Image by louisa_catlover via FlickrCheck out the Give List - a place to share ideas on how to give in these tough times.

Times are tight. We know, we know. We’ve all seen the scary headlines. Too many of the scary headlines. And we’re all feeling the pressure in other ways too.

But, still, we want to contribute what we can to making the world the better place.

The GiveList gives you ideas and inspiration for just that: ways that you contribute without spending or buying. Or maybe giving while buying and spending a little less than usual.

From the Whole Foods Wooden Nickel Program that rewards shoppers who use re-usable shopping bags with wooden nickels for contributions to local causes that Whole Foods will fulfill to sites like Good Search that provide small contributions to causes of your choice when you use their search engines , there are lots of small things you can do that don’t cost you anything that can make a big impact on communities.

And you probably have some thoughts on this. Share it on, via twitter, in your own blog post. Just tag it GiveList and we’ll share help you share your idea with the world.

You can contact either Allison Fine or Marnie Webb if you want to ask more questions, get the inside scoop or if you just have an idea about making the GiveList better.
