One of my greatest fears about growing up is losing my idealism. I believe strongly in the power of individuals and teams to effect meaningful change in the world. I pledge to search for ways to make the world a better place, and in GranddadÃ¢â¬â¢s words, to Ã¢â¬Ådedicate myself to helping poor people eat better and laugh more.Ã¢â¬Â Every month, I will donate time, skills and/or money to causes that support this goal. At this point, I do not know what my life will be like and which types of donation will be most effective and meaningful. In any case, I pledge to whole-heartedly search for ways to help others on a regular basis.
