one for one

Poverty
united kingdom, USA, Australia - everywhere!
Inspiration
ever notice how much you are willing to spend on the smaller things in life. Take that cup of coffee you need to start your day? or your bar of chocolate you really need mid morning because you cant wait til lunch!
your take out dinner when its the end of the week and your too tired to cook??
for so many of us its nothing, dont even think twice about it and yet in other parts of the world they won't even earn the equivalent f a cup of coffee in a day.
How
why not take one of these things and get together with a group of friends and match one for one.
for every cup of coffee you buy set aside the same amount of money. $3 starbucks means another $3 in the fund.
do this for a week, a month, a year and give the money to someone who really needs it: someone you know, a charity you choose, the family down the street who just lost their job. doing this in a group helps keep you going ;)
its up to you, thats the beauty of it!
