We’re all Capable of This

Jeff Lew is eliminating school lunch debt in the Seattle area one online fundraiser at a time. He called his son’s school and asked what the amount of school lunch debt was. It was less than $100. He quickly started an online fundraiser to cover the debt. When the initial goal was met he expanded to include all Seattle public schools. He’s expanding each time he reaches one goal to tackle another. At some point he may just completely wipe out all school lunch debt in the Seattle area.

There’s no reason we can’t all do something like this. He’s tackling school lunch debt. But there is no shortage of issues that need attention and resources. We have this idea that we’re not able to make any real change as one person in a sea of many. If Jeff Lew had the same mindset, then thousands of dollars of school lunch debt in Seattle would still be owed.

You know what you’re passionate about. Why not turn that passion into something positive?
