11 Things Writers Might Want To Do To Express Thanks

wooden shoes for writersWriters and others might want to express their thanks in any of these ways:

  1. List 108 things you’re grateful for. I’ll post my list tomorrow.
  2. If you blog, make a list of the bloggers and webmasters you’re truly grateful did like Deb Ng did in 25 Bloggers, Blogs and Websites for Which this Freelance Writer is Truly Thankful.
  3. Write 8 articles for Demand Studios and a book will be donated to First Book to promote literacy.
  4. If you blog donate a specific amount for every retweet like one of our favorite writing bloggers does. She donates to a local food bank.
  5. Fund micro-loans through Kiva. You’ll get reports about how your loan is working and you can roll it over when it’s paid back if you like.
  6. Give a goat, or part of a goat, or a flock of chickens or a whole arc or just a bit to help others become truly self-sufficient through Heifer International. You can get a gift card if you want to donate on behalf of someone who has enough stuff.
  7. Click once a day to donate free food and buy nifty t-shirts and other sustainable stuff where profits promote wellbeing around the planet at TheHungerSite.com. I’ve actually made this my home page so I can remember to click every morning when I open my browser, and I love their t-shirts and other things.
  8. Subscribe to Ode Magazine – it offers real solutions and optimism. Then write for them.
  9. You can even get a free subscription to Ode Magazine by shopping at worldofgood.com/ode. WorldofGood.com offers socially-conscious products. Do your shopping here and do good as well. And if you meet their criteria you can sell there as well.
  10. Read and give Soul of Money; it will help you get grateful if you’re not.  (Yeah, I know I say this a lot – I’m still re-reading and moved every time I open the book.
  11. Oh my goodness! I almost forgot to express thanks to each and everyone of my readers. THANKS!

What’s your favorite way to give thanks?

  • Were you aware that only 67% of the money received by Heifer is used to fund actual programs that benefit real people? The rest goes to administrative costs (31.1%) and 1.7% for fundraising.
    According to Charity Navigator, they only rate 2 out of 4 overall.
    World Vision gives 86.7% of their money to programs, while the US Fund for Unicef gives 90.5% to fund programs (both rate 4 out of 4).
    Just food for thought!

      World Concern seems to do roughly the same thing and his a higher rating. And for me, it’s the real life solutions… goats, chickens, bees – the world needs more bees! that appeals to me. Money works too… so does adopting a child as in World Vision and UNICEF – it all works.
