How the heck can I complete international gives to make the world a happier place? Read on and you see how easy it really is. No travel required.
We are all about making the entire world happy through giving. Yes, we have people all over the world doing their daily gives, but how about giving across the world, from Canada to India, from India to South America, from South America to Mexico.
Skip the Flight and Just Give
There are lots of international gives you can do that do not require a flight. You can give to someone in another country without having to pay for a ticket!
International Gives Right From Your Home
Kiva – We love Kiva. It is the give that keeps on giving. The microloan site lets you give to someone any where in the world, they pay you back and then you can give again.
GoGetFunding – This crowdsource funding site is truly international. Give $5 to a random campaign in a country of your choice.
Send a note of gratitude to someone who lives outside your country. Send a note to a friend, a friend of a friend, a family member, or co-worker.
‘Like’ an international Facebook Page or Instagram account. Leave them a message on their newsfeed so they know you are from a different country.

Share your favorite international recipe. Learning about new cultures starts with food! If you live in Canada, share an Indian or Italian recipe. If you live in The Middle East, share a European or North American recipe. If you live the US, share your favorite Mexican recipe or South American recipe. Food is a great way to experience different countries, so lets start the recipe chain going so we all start to understand global tastes and cultures.

My dream is to inspire people around the world – young and old – to make a better, happier world for everyone. As a family we have come to learn through our own daily giving practice that if we all do one small thing to give every day – together we will be the change the world needs.
