It’s Not Too Late

Post from February 5, 2016 (↻ August 7, 2017), filed under .

One thing I love about the Internet is that it’s incredibly easy to try things. Including idealistic, adamant, tedious, and little-sensical things.

One thing I played with now is reenact what stuck with me when reading Ellen Langer’s Mindfulness, the recreation of a particular type of ad—for charity. It’s not too late to send one dollar. To whom? Go see for yourself.

It’s not too late to send $1 to the International Committee of the Red Cross, either.

Figure: Giving it away.

As suggested on the project page, I’m not affiliated with the charity organizations (however, I am an EFF member). I’ve informed all of them, though, and am happy to have received some early backup for this little campaign.
