"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Mid-year inspiration

It's been awhile, but don't worry. We've been up to some good these past several months, including several repeated projects (trash collection, recycling, lending hands to friends, relatives and perfect strangers). But I confess I haven't made the daily effort I made last year. Sometimes I realize it's been days since I've done anything notable, but then Dad points out "charity includes the things you do for your own family."

Today I came upon this inspirational collection of stories about a variety of people and organizations who have acted charitably on a number of levels. Slate also has some ideas for how to lend a helping hand. I hope these collections inspires you, too.

What have you done for your community lately? Please share your stories here and inspire us all.
