I’ve “skipped” before.
I don’t mean the hippity-hoppity-stride that comes naturally to children. I mean omit, miss out, pass over — to give something a miss.
I know… in our society it’s not common to ‘give something a miss’ — we’re so busy trying to make sure we hit our mark. However, this is one time you’ll want to SKIP something.
Skip1.org is an organization that does just that. They encourage and implore people to Skip something. It’s as simple as skipping a coffee, a favorite treat, a car wash, a pizza on Friday nights, a haircut, a beer, a manicure, a video rental, a cab fare or a 1SaleADay deal… I could go on. It’s best said through this video…
All public donations go to the acquisition and distribution of food and water projects worldwide.
Don’t miss the principle!
There are a variety of causes that you can support by sending your money or giving of your time. And the great thing is — you get to choose! So whether you choose Skip1Org or another reputable cause doesn’t matter as much as the principle of GIVING. The big picture is that it takes all of us as individuals, entrepreneurs, neighbors, CEOs, and humans to make a collective change. It’s not really common to give up something that benefits your business. But what if we all skipped something, to profit a hungry child? Let’s focus on the NEW way of business — conscientious companies that give back in big and small ways. — “Put Feet To It” and decide today to do YOUR part to contribute. I encourage you to think about something you can SKIP today! Try it… you’ll LIKE it 🙂
