“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” – Margaret Mead

Despite the problems in the world today, there will always be resources to provide hope for a better tomorrow.  Lingo flies all over the internet to find these positive change catalysts. That’s why the site Lingo likes this week is KarmaTube.  Here’s more about them from their website:
KarmaTube
“Our vision is to create a global network of volunteers who capture stories, using simple digital video cameras. While some of the stories produced may be polished and professional, others diamonds-in-the-rough, the most important thing is that they celebrate the work of change-makers; demonstrating that small acts performed by individuals all around the world can ignite a “tipping point.” We shift from consumers to become active contributors in creating a better world for ourselves, those around us, and for many generations to come.

To inspire individuals to make a change in their own lives, for each video KarmaTube offers three simple suggestions for viewers to support the spirit shown in the video. These can be as simple as reflecting on a topic, planting a tree, to performing a random act of kindness.

KarmaTube is a project of ServiceSpace, an all-volunteer run non-profit organization. Our aim is to enable individuals to contribute in meaningful ways to the world around them. Together, we hope to “be the change we wish to see in the world.”

We do our part to change the world every day as we teach thousands of children to learn to read up to a third grade level.  To help your children “be the change”, click here to sign up for a free 30 day trial of our online reading program.  If you cannot afford to pay for the Reading Kingdom, we do offer a scholarship program.
