We love reading, right? We read to escape, to travel, to learn, to grow, to be entertained. But did you know that reading can also help you do good in the world?
I'm not talking nonfiction, personal development books, either. Just regular old fiction. Or should I say, fiction with a purpose?
Sometimes things in the world are so wrong, just out and out disgustingly wrong, that we want to stand up and scream. Instead of that, I recommend doing something. It doesn't have to be something huge or extravagant that will get you on the evening news, flashbulbs bursting in your face. It can be a small step. Small steps, done over and over, can still make a huge difference. Tweet this
Here's my small step: I'm donating 10% of all of the proceeds of book sales (ongoing) to International Justice Mission, an organization that works worldwide to help free victims of human trafficking. You can find out more about their current work by visiting their Facebook page. And there are lots of ways of your own to help, if you want to do more than feel frustrated with all the bad stuff out in the world.
Would love to hear from you via Facebook or Twitter about the ways that you're taking "little steps."
