Native American culture -- among others -- has a custom of giving to others on your birthday, instead of receiving. When you're used to birthdays as a day of waiting while others do for you, this feels very wrong. At first. But if you think about it, the more you give, the more you ultimately receive, right?
So today, my birthday, help me make this day a memorable one by telling me what I can do for you.
One simple rule! It can't cost money. In the spirit of this crazy world economy, let's see how much can be done for others without spending a centavo!
Do you need a blog entry edited? Or help finding a home for a cat you found on the street? Or something else? Let me know, e-mail, comment on the blog using the link below, or Twitter it to me at @thefutureisred.
As long as I can write, do, act, ask or tell, send your request my way. If I can't do it myself, I will find someone who can.
So yes, Happy Birthday To Me! Happy Birthday To Me!
