30 Dec Treecycling-Winter

So the past week’s 30 Ways in 30 Days actions have centered around the holidays and what we can do at this time of year, through small actions, to make the world a better place. I’m not going to list all the week’s actions – you can find them at Take Part’s website – but here are a few of my favorites:

Skip the Mall—Make Edible Gifts

This is one of my favorites, because I am not really into holiday gift-giving. I don’t care for the over-consumption and the excess that comes with holidays, nor do I care for the stress that goes along with people running around buying presents for other people who don’t “need” anything.

By joining their community, you’ll be helping to raise $1 million dollars for education, health, alternative income, water and sanitation initiatives in the developing world.

Free The Children’s We Day is the largest event of its kind. It celebrates the power of young people to change the world and kicks off a year of youth-led, world-changing initiatives. Created by Free The Children to celebrate the power of young people to create positive change, We Day is a day-long event that ignites a year-long program for change, called We Schools in Action.
