Common wisdom dictates that you should be the change you want to see in the world. It sounds overwhelming, but real change starts when one person does one thing to make the world a better place. This month, we’re offering unique ways to brighten the world and pay it forward. Dozens of giving and volunteer opportunities are right around the corner – local organizations that need funding and assistance in order to advance such concerns as food security, poverty, the environment, developmental disabilities, literacy, homelessness and more. These many exceptional nonprofit organizations are waiting to hear from you. Start small, and you can make a big difference. Volunteer. Donate. Do good. Feel good.
