First World Problems

Posted by Comments Off

As you can tell, I almost never post to the blog. I apologize (again) and will make a legitimate new year’s resolution to do better. There’s a first world problem for you.

And, this video has some more – shared by those who could only dream of having problems like most of us endure on a daily basis. I fully admit to saying all but three of these at least once. And the one about pickles is a statement I’ve made about 300 times. Next time I’ll think twice.

Kudos to WaterisLIFE for this video. As we approach the holidays and many of us sit around the tree looking at mounds of presents we don’t really need, it’s a good reminder of what much of the world faces every day.


I hope you have a great holiday!  Give yourself a gift on twitter by following @gettinggiving today!

A Film for Friday

I don’t usually add many items from my own workplace, but thought I’d add this one today. Why?

1) I haven’t posted for a very long time, so at the very least I owe you SOMETHING!
2) I really like this. It’s simple yet emotional.

Watch this. Twice. Then make your staff watch it. And your boss, and your board, and your neighbor. Then pick some random people on the street to watch it. Together, you might just change the world.

Many thanks to Dan Pallotta for this terrific Ted talk about the power of investing in nonprofits. Good stuff!

Over the past several years, the folks at Campbell & Company have done some creative marketing pieces. . . and I always love their buttons. I’m sitting in their conference room for a conference today and just thought I’d share. . .

The Facebook one always cracks me up. And, for the record, that Friending activity isn’t a ‘move’ so I don’t think you should enter it in your contact report either!!
