“One woman, 365 days to do good”
We could all take a leaf out of Betty Londergan's book (or blog).
1 January 2010 marked the start of a pretty amazing year for Betty. For the next 365 days, she pledged to donate $100 every day to a worthy organisation, cause or project...and blog about it.
You'll be pleased to know that not only is Betty a very charitable person, she is also a very good writer (all the more reason to read her blog). And it wasn't very long before Betty's project gained quite a following.
After finding out about HelpAge and in particular our programme in Darfur improving older people's access to healthcare through donkey ambulances, Betty made us a part of her "What Gives?" project.
Not only did she donate $100 to HelpAge USA, she wrote a very flattering post about HelpAge, "One beautiful thing about getting older", which left us glowing with pride!
Julia has also written a piece about Betty on the Huffington Post website, "One woman, 365 days to do good". Julia describes Betty's project as "three hundred and sixty-five love letters to the world". How many have you written recently?
