Ladies Home Journal has a "Do Good" section of their web site.
There you can join a group of other people working toward the same philanthropic goals. You can do a weekly challenge. You can also create your own "life list", goals you aspire to. It's a fun way to work on good deeds in a community type setting.
Go check it out and let it inspire you to great things! Come back and relate your stories here. What have you done lately?
