Feeding the Hungry When You’re Starved for Time

For those with a desire to volunteer or donate to a good cause, but who are pressed for time, “Charity Guide”:http://www.charityguide.org may be of interest. According to a recent article in the _Chicago Tribune_, the organization’s web site lists 170 “flexible service projects”–everything from helping the homeless to protecting the environment–that can be done in as little as 15 minutes. The projects range from the simple (reading about how to conserve water or electricity) to the more involved (donating money to help provide supplies for a school classroom). Founder Michael Organ’s goal is for the site to eventually generate one million acts of kindness per year.
