We all know there is more we can easily do to help the world, but sometimes our lives get in the way. But when they opportunity comes our way to give the possibility of positive change with a few clicks on the computer, why wouldn't everyone do it? For example, my aunt and uncle run an organization called Public Matters, which concerns itself with issues in Los Angeles. Their current project is Market Makeovers, a defense against the problem of the food desert. A food desert is an area where fresh fruit and healthy options are not available, and Los Angeles is rife with them.
Public Matters is in a competition for an important grant and I am reaching out to support them, not just because they are my family but it is a good organization with a good cause and we should all do a little bit more to help the world.
