February Roundup: Giving Matters

February Roundup: Giving Matters

February, my favorite short month flew by, and we’ve already completed a whole month of the #Give10 Reboot.To be completely honest, February didn’t feel short or easy. A lot of things happening around the world have made my heart feel sad. Some days it’s easiest to bury my head in the sand–or more realistically–in my case–search for plane tickets to escape to… more…

Practical Activism: The #Give10 Comeback

Practical Activism: The #Give10 Comeback

Here at wanderingforgood we talk a lot about travel (because it’s awesome), yet we care equally about the “good” part of our name and the “change the world” part of our mission. As someone who loves the world, and has a strong passion for social justice, I’ve been experiencing a lot of overwhelm lately. Over the last weeks I’ve lost a lot of… more…

People, Portraits and Prizes

PRIZES?  Yes! Keep reading. Back when I lived in Sudan (and couldn’t run), I was working as a story writer and photographer. The land in Sudan was as barren as barren could be.

Or perhaps, like me, you skipped both Turkey and shopping, but still feel overwhelmed and overmarketed. And now there is the business of… more…

Week #8: Playing for Change

Week #8: Playing for Change

Yesterday we covered the mushy topic of living love. While I’m not typically a mushy person in particular, I’m do get super excited about people who are living intentionally in order to help others. When I started my #give10 search for people and projects who were changing the world, I accidentally surrounded myself by a… more…

Spreading the Love of Life

Spreading the Love of Life

This Valentines Day, per usual, I’m not expecting any flowers or chocolates. But I refuse to be a person who grumbles about being single today. I’m not claiming that I love being a +0 all the time and I’d certainly not turn away a knight in shining armor who came knocking on my door. I’m… more…
