The goal of this site is to be a resource of 'things you can do'. Not just any 'things' but if you have a goal or a cause you're concerned about you can look here for a list of things you can do.
To be the most useful I need you to send in what it is you're interested in. Either put it in the comments or send it in via the home page. Until some suggestions come in I'll help people out with their goals on Kiva.org. Today I lent $25 to a group of seamstresses in Paraguay. Kiva is amazing, you're not donating money you're just lending it to someone that really needs a small loan and they'll pay you back, then you can lend it out again. If you ever need the money back you can withdraw the money from your account once it's paid back.
Some things will be easy, some things will be counter intuitive, some things will take some dedication. Lending money on Kiva is pretty easy, if you're looking for a way to help someone trying to better their lives through hard work. But I've got one that is even easier.
Try using only one paper towel to dry your hands, that is, next time you need to use a paper towel. The trick is shake off the excess water first and fold the paper towel in half. It's amazing, you think it's not going to work, but then it does, and it really gets your hands drier than you're probably used to. Here's a video demo.
So you don't have to read through the entire blog and all of the comments to find things I'll try to use tags for these posts and I'll make pages to summarize everything. You can think of the blog as a 'what's new' section.
Eventually I hope this turns into a wiki of what you can do but for now just send me ideas you have or guest posts and I'll put them up for you.
