Simple Way to Make a Difference: Wholly Guacamole

Posted on

Looking for a way to make a difference but don’t have much money or time to spend? This sums me up so I figured it might apply to others as well. Well, today I noticed a post on Wholly Guacamole’s Facebook page. It supports Operation Purple which helps children of military families go to camp. Wholly Guacamole’s goal is to send 100 kids to camp and it needs your help.

Simply buy a t-shirt (sizes range from youth to adult XXL) for $10. Yep, that’s all. Ten dollars for a shirt and you’re helping a kid attend camp. Don’t have need of a shirt? No problem, you can donate money and bypass the shirt. It’s simple. It’s different. It’s a way to help someone when your time and money are limited.

What do You Know About Klout?

Posted on

Klout: a website that measures and rates social media user’s influence with a number between 1 and 100. The scale measures Facebook and Twitter usage to determine if people are following you and your links, sharing the information you publish and are influenced by you.

Perks: Members of Klout are rewarded with perks.  Based upon different standards, people with Klout can apply to host different events. For example, at one time members could apply for a year’s supply of Secret Clinical Strength deodorant. Not everyone is accepted for every party. However, I recently applied for a Spotify account. (It’s similar to Pandora, but you can make playlists.)

How to sign up: Just visit Klout and sign in.
