I love what this guy is doing for so many reasons. He grows his own vegetables and gives away the excess and so giving an opportunity to people in need to eat good food. So if you have a yard or a little bit of land, this is something to consider.

Year Of Giving – WCVJS3FKXD5K

I have just come across a blog site http://yearofgiving.wordpress.com/ where Reed Sandridge shares his giving experience.

Every day, Sandridge walks up to a stranger and gives away $10. So far, he’s handed out close to $1,200. He also interviews the recipients about their lives and posts their stories on the blog.

The Year of Giving started on Tuesday, December 15, 2009 at 3:30 pm after Reed lost his job at a nonprofit organization due to the economic climate.

December 15th is an important date for Reed; it is when his mother lost her long battle with heart disease in 2006.

He says his goal is not to change the lives of those with whom he comes in contact but it is to inspire others to pursue the ideals that the French philosopher Auguste Comte envisioned when he coined the term “altruism.”

Without love, what are we worth?  Eighty-nine cents!  Eighty-nine cents worth of chemicals walking around lonely.  ~M*A*S*H, Hawkeye
