Microphilanthropy May: That's A Wrap

It's the last day of the month, the last day of Microphilanthropy May, and I've given my last dollars away. Cue Peggy Lee friends—is that all there is?

For those of you who are just tuning in, my challenge this month was to give away $30 (in the most creative ways possible) over the course of 31 days. Here's a recap of where my donation dollars went:

$5 to the PETCO Foundation
$3 strategically left in a few books at the Watertown Public Library
$1 in the Stuff Your Bra Tank at lululemon
$1 to a homeless man outside of South Station
¢.50 in candy vending machines in Ann Arbor, MI
$1 to the Boston Medical Center Kids Fund
¢.25 in an expired parking meter
$2 to a random Nordstrom Cafe customer
$3 for a flower for a friend at work
$5 for the AIDS Action Committee 
$11 in food donations to the Watertown Food Pantry

And that's a wrap—the end of an awesome month full of thoughtfulness and generosity. A big thank you to the people over at GOOD for the inspiration.

So, what's up for June? I need to chat with Grammy before I can divulge the details, but if she gives her stamp of approval, this might just be one of my favorite months yet.

As always, more to come.


  1. Hi, I'm brand new to your blog, discovered it last week... I think... through a Lululemon blog post. I must say, so far, I think it's fantastic!

  2. Hi Tania, glad you found my blog and thanks so much for reading!
