  •  I always thought it would be a good idea (3+ / 0-)

    To have a fund raising effort for the food banks, or any other deserving organization (or if it is possible, for Kossacks that need help) called "Change you can believe in".

    It would be people putting their loose change in a jar for one month, and then donating whatever adds up to a deserving cause.

    If we couldn't afford to do that, then for a week, or a day even... or if it was a DKos thing, we could donate the cost of a piece of pie... or even $3.14.

    Small amounts add up quickly.  

    If anyone wants to steal this idea, please do!!

      at the food shelves. At ours every dollar donated is able to buy at least 12 dollars of food - and the good thing is its specifically tailored to the community we serve.
      I like this idea - I may get the gumption...may.
