In the two and a half years since I graduated from college, the only thing I can say I’ve done for the world is not bought bottled water. Not so for my college friend Stephanie Curry, who has recently started her own charity in Paraguay.
Her organization, The Healthier Homes Project, gives women in rural Paraguay clean stoves, which is healthier for them than cooking
over an open fire.
Stephanie isn’t trying to change the world; she’s trying to help people, which is way better. She’s making a real difference in people’s lives, and not in some abstract way like giving money to the Met.
You can piggyback off of her goodwill by donating to her charity. Drop her a line and give her some dimes. Because not buying bottled water is probably not enough.
