Hey all,

Just wanted to let you know what is going on around here and what the future holds. :-) Something I have noticed in the past is that often people will be overwhelmed with problems of the world and this will result in them not helping at all. Not knowing who they should help or if it will even make a difference is not a good reason to not help at all. Rather, we should see it as a challenge, how many people can we help, what can we each do, individually and collectively to change the world. That is the vision I have for this website.

I will take it from a personal blog to a website, where people can visit everyday and donate a dollar to an organization, easily. I imagine a site where the main page changes each day to a new organization and it has a scrolling total on how much we have raised that day. And then archives, where people can look to old posts and see how much we raised for other groups.

What I need from y’all is help with the name. I personally am attached to the Change You Can Afford name, but I do realize that for simplicity sake a shorter name might have advantages. A shorter name will roll of the tongue easier, and it is very common for successful businesses to have short names which relate to the mission of the organization.
  • Daily Aid
  • Daily Alms
  • Donate Daily,
  • Be the change (referring to the quote about be the change you wish to see in the world)
  • A Dollar A Day
  • Affordable Change
  • The Power of One
We are looking for something that reinforces the idea of the power that a group can have when they act together and the impact of a dollar a day. Any ideas and suggestions you have would be appreciated, clever wording is not one of my  fortes.

Also, if you or anyone you know would be interested in helping getting us going let me know. WE have multiple board members, but a few more to split the work up more is good. Or if you have a skill which could be useful for us; website design, graphic design, advertising, accounting, etc, we would love for any help you could give us.
