Speaking of Micro Charities

Speaking of Micro-Charities, I hope you all are watching the best feel good TV show of the year — Disney’s Extreme Home Makever. The selection process ensures that the money and donations is going to a family that is truely in need. And the result is always a tearful happy joyful ending and a new beginning for a deserving family. The show is up for an emmy and renewal for a second season.

The idea is taking off and some communities are pooling together to do their own Extreme Home Makeovers without Disney’s help.

As they say in the excellent movie by the same name, Pay it Forward.
