Bad Habits For A Good Cause

Remember our fantastic (now) 14-year-old friend Clare?

I’m pretty sure you haven’t forgotten this seriously impressive overachiever and her hard work to support Haiti. But, just in case, here’s a little reminder.

Clare collected poetry and artwork about the Haiti earthquake and put them together in booklets (see photo on left). She has since been selling them at school; a portion of the money will go to the Red Cross.

To date, Clare has sold an impressive 22 booklets, raising $110. If you’re interested in getting a booklet yourself, you can do so right here.

But Clare didn’t stop there (I’ve already said she’s an overachiever…why would she stop?).

No, she went on to create the Couch Potato Philanthropist’s Challenge, giving you the chance to turn your out-of-control TV watching habits (Lost? Glee? The Office?) into fundraising for a worthy non-profit.

Sure, there are restrictions — it’s never healthy to watch TOO much TV — but I like the idea of turning a bad habit into support for a good cause.

If you’d like to take the challenge, you can learn more here. In the meantime, I’m excited to learn what creative idea Clare will come up with next!
