I Am Your Champions - Other Champions and Causes

There's a lot of great Champions and Causes out there...this is an attempt to direct anyone who stumbles upon my championing to see the other great things that are being done!

@TwoScootersPress is offering the following rewards: Want photo editing, English-to-Esperanto translation or homemade cookies? Donate to the Autism Women's Network!

@wcoburn is trying to sponser the rehabilitation of a Mickaboo bird. If he raises $200, he will release a vegan game night cookbook into creative commons! Check it out here:

@nowthissound is making personalized music mixes for a measly $5 donation to the Music Maker Relief Foundation. Check it out here!

These are just three of folks that are trying to raise money and awareness for their charities. Check out #iayc hashtag on twitter to follow more!

As for me, I don't have much, but I am donating what I can spare to all three of these charities. C'mon folks...reach down and give!

I Am Your Champion - Reading Is Fundamental

So Duane (@aterribleidea on twitter) doing some sort of philanthropic game this week over here on his blog and on twitter...seems like a really great way to do some good and have fun with it at the same time. Check it the blogpost here:

Reading has always been a huge part of my life. Growing up, I was fortunate to have a family that encouraged reading. This has been an enormous boon in my life, fostering creativity, vocabulary, imagination and intellectual curiosity that are still with me to this day.

I hope that by championing Reading Is Fundamental, I can bring someone the joy that reading has brought to me.
