Making A Difference by Gidget Giardino

Part 3 in a Series on Becoming a Philanthropreneur, 
also known as Social Entrepreneur or Social Good
Becoming A Social Entrepreneur and Making A Difference
  • Is your life lead by you or by others?
  • Do you want to make a positive difference in the world? 
  • Are you inspired to create change?
All these questions are important ones. If you do not know how to take control of your life and make the changes necessary to become a Social Entrepreneur then you're in luck. Because that is what I am going to share with you. Exciting, huh? Well, maybe you're not as excited as I am (yet) because you have not seen the BIG picture.  Let me help you visualize your new life. 

The Ultimate Pay It Forward Project
You've probably seen the movie Pay It Forward with Haley Joel Osment, Kevin Spacey and Helen Hunt. In this epic movie a young boy is presented by his teacher a class assignment of finding a way to make a positive difference in the world. His assignment is taken to a whole new level when he makes the decision to put his project into action instead of just putting it on paper and getting a grade. His plan is to help three people get or do something they cannot get or do for themselves and in turn these three must go out and "Pay It Forward," that is, they must each help three other people without expecting anything in return. And this cycle is to be repeated over and over again. The beauty of the project is not only how many people receive a special unsolicited gift, the beauty is the rewarding feeling of the giver and the number of how many people are positively affected by "Paying It Forward." The idea of doing so much Social Good is magical. Imagine the possibilities and take action!

That is what we do on a grand scale, with an added twist. That twist is both the giver and the receiver are rewarded AND there is an added element of giving which makes this the Ultimate Pay It Forward Project. 

How Does It Work?  

Step One: Decide you want to make a positive change in the world one person at a time by making a commitment to feed children who are literally starving to death and desperately need your help. 

Step Two: Make a second commitment to share this project with lots of people and have at least 3 people join with you on this major project of Social Good within the next 30 days. 

Step Three: Continue to share this project with others and be sure your Pay It Forward numbers are at least progressing by three. For example, you get three people to join you this month and those three get three to join them in the next 30 days, and so on and so forth. 

Everyone involved receives a reward based on their individual participation level. The key to the entire project is ACTION. Without action there is no project and children continue to die by the thousands. 

Becoming a Social Entrepreneur for Social Good is not only something to be proud of .... it is a necessary first step to wiping out world hunger. Join this worthy cause today and become a Social Entrepreneur.
