Can you put your money where your mouth is? There is no doubt that a lot of BS exists in this forum, then again this place is also filled with people who are the real deal. People who are building businesses, doing what they want in life and succeeding. The jargon in this forum is often about "giving back to the community" and we all know, us offliners, we're all about taking action.
Can you imagine the feeling of giving children the same opportunities we have, can you imagine us warriors gathering and building a freakin library? It would take a FRACTION of what we in this forum earn in a SINGLE DAY. It would take 5000$. To fill a library shelf with books would cost us 25 bucks. This is what I donated to start this off and damn is it a good feeling, tomorrow it will be a lot easier to know that part of the money I earn is going somewhere that makes a difference. Have you ever had trouble with motivation and procrastination? Try this.
I have set up a fundraising page at Room to Read where we can follow our progress to establishing a library in a third world country. I'm going to continue donate 1% of my monthly income and I hope that some of you successful warriors want to do the same.

Your reasons doesn't really matter, do it because you will feel great about yourself, do it because you'll get more motivated or do it because you want to do something good. It doesn't have to be much, 1 dollar will give a child a new book. Without getting to much into clichés, maybe you can skip one starbucks coffee?
Even if you can't spare any money, at least support us by keeping this thread alive and spreading the donation link to as many people as possible.
I sincerely hope that you will take action and show people that it's not just BS in here. Me, the people involved with room to read and more importantly, all the children we help will be extremely grateful. I will of course follow up with the progress of establishing this library.
