It so amazing and heartening to see the stream of great ideas coming in via Twitter for the GiveList. Marnie and I noticed that some are idea without a website home, so we wanted to make sure to capture them on our bogs as well. Here are just a few:

  • Donate your frequent flier miles to families of soldiers so they can visit them during the holidays (thanks
  • Adopt a senior to shovel their walk this winter (Of course, you should make sure they want to be adopted!) (thanks Chuck Theis!)
  • Send a note to someone who works for a nonprofit and thank them for what they do (thanks, Jane Hexter)
  • Record a video about a cause that’s meaningful to you and post it on YouTube (thanks, Roger Carr!)

Thanks to everyone sharing and circulating their ideas!


Wow, what a response!  In the few hours that GiveList has been up and running, we are delighted and thrilled with the enthusiasm and excitement with which our idea has been received.  Thanks to Beth Kanter for so creatively adding GiveList to an upcoming presentation in Boston, and Lucy Bernholz for posting about it so quickly.  Thanks to the tens of tweeters using the #givelist hashtag and sharing ideas and helping to spread the word.  Here’s my favorite tweet of the day from Missashe, swoon #givelist (Hat tip, everyone I follow on twitter…) love, love, love this idea!”

So, thanks again for giving our idea oxygen and love, as someone said to us this afternoon, Just because I’m poor doesn’t mean that I have to be stingy!”
Allison and Marnie
