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.

Was this interesting? Feel free to tweet this, or to invite me for a coffee! Thank you!
