WWTDG: Subscribe to Charity
Two weeks ago, we witnessed President Obama deliver his second inaugural address. His speech was a call to action, a reminder that our work towards a more perfect union remains unfinished and that we each must do our part to improve the community around us. Whether it’s devoting our time through volunteer service or by making small donations towards causes that make a big impact, we should all do what we can in order to move our nation forward.
This week’s Women Working to Do Good (WWTDG) profile highlights a young woman who is doing just that. Amy Crews created an innovative website that makes charitable giving as easy as signing up for a subscription to your favorite magazine. In the article, the author writes:
As Amy said, “while we’re all giving a little bit, collectively as a community, we’re really making a difference.” CharitySub has focused on issues ranging from childhood obesity to hunger, clean water, confidence through the arts, sex trafficking, and financial literacy to name a few.
The work that Amy and her team are doing is inspiring and reminds us that anyone can help make the world a better place.
Women Working to Do Good is a series that the White House and Hello Giggles collaborate on. We will bring you stories of women in communities across the United States who we think are stars in their own right. Each story will also be featured on Hello Giggles. If there is a woman in your community who you think should be honored in this series, email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
