March 22 is World Water Day, where all human beings are invited to learn more about water-related issues, get inspired and make a positive impact. The international event dates back to 1992 when the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development made a recommendation: Thereafter, in 1993, 22 March was established as World Water Day. UN-Water sets the theme each year, and for 2017, it’s about wastewater.
International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. For 2017, organizers are seizing the occasion to activate us all around the critical goal of being bold for change and taking groundbreaking action that truly drives the greatest change for women.
Each of us can be a leader within our own spheres of influence by taking bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity. Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance – and thereby unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over. We all have urgent work to do. Are you ready to #BeBoldForChange this International Women’s Day and beyond?

Each year, people all across America gather-up on Thanksgiving morning for a few hours to feed the homeless. Some of these efforts are organized by Gobble Gobble Give, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity where your vital donations are 100 percent tax-deductible. For their upcoming gatherings in Austin, Boca Raton, Detroit, LA (Echo Park, Downtown and Santa Monica), Las Vegas, Nashville, New York City, San Diego, San Francisco and Santa Ana, participants will bring their own dishes and prepare meals using all the food that comes in. Then, everyone will hit the streets together to give it all away to homeless men, women, and children.
If you are available to get involved with the Gobble Gobble Give festivities this Thanksgiving, participation only takes a few hours, and it very well might change someone’s life, including yours.
