Sam Davidson, MDiv’09, created this Web site to give users easy, practical resources for making a positive impact on their local communities. The “5 Minutes of Caring” section offers daily 99-word articles featuring practical tips and motivation. The “Act Locally” calendar lists meaningful events, from 5K runs to lectures, in many American cities, and a “Partners” page matches your interests with community organizations. If five minutes a day is too much of a commitment, there are tshirts (cool, of course) and Fair Trade coffee you can order.
