Yes, I’ve totally failed at the last week. That happens. In life, there are failures. You can’t change them or cover them up, you just pick up and move on. So that’s what I’m doing.
And…. today is an AWESOME day for the Something New Project. Because I have a simply fabulous new thing.
I’ve joined an incredible new company, The Daily Do Good, as Editorial Director. The Daily Do Good is the brainchild of our fabulous founder, Saranah Holmes, and it’s a great way to spread love and charity, especially if you live in the DC area.
Let me tell you a bit more…
Who we are: A website and subscription e-mail service dedicated to philanthropic events and charitable opportunities in the DC Metro area.
What we do: Deliver a thrice-weekly fun-to- read (hyphen-happy!) e-mail detailing upcoming charitable events and a twice weekly e-mail, Do Good Now, featuring the story of an organization and offering readers an opportunity to donate directly to that organization.
When we do what we do: Event e-mails three times a week (Mon., Wed., Fri.), feature e-mails twice a week (Tues., Thurs.). It’s right there in the last paragraph! It’s okay. We know it can be hard to remember details when you’re excited. We’re excited, too.
Where we are: The Daily Do Good is based in Washington, DC. Currently, that’s where our focus lies. Of course, anyone who lives here knows that “DC” really means “within a 50 mile radius of DC proper.” In the future, we hope to expand our geographic reach.
Why we do it: Our motto is “Do Good, Feel Good.” We believe that giving back is a privilege. We also know that it can be overwhelming to try to find all sorts of information and figure out which cause deserves your help the most, which charity to donate to, or which event to attend. We want to help streamline that process to make the process of giving back easier and more joyful for you.
How we can all help one another: We just mentioned how we can help you if you subscribe to The Daily Do Good. You can help us by spreading the word. Post about this exciting new opportunity on your social media pages, and tweet us at @thedailydogood. If you work for a charitable organization or non-profit, get in touch! It would be our pleasure to tell your story, to help you raise awareness (and funds!) about the great, important work that you are doing. See how it all cycles? When we help one another, and help our community, we help ourselves. Pretty cool, eh?
