small things can make a BIG difference

I am and have always been the type of person that wanted to help someone.  For as long as I can remember, I have been a people pleaser.  Other peoples happiness was always before my own.  It affected me when I seen someone down or without and I would do what I could to see if I could make a difference.

I can remember as early as fourth grade.  Another girl in my class didn’t have money for the bake sale.  My mom had give me money to buy something for myself.  Although I was very shy, I remember going up giving the little girl half my money and enjoyed watching her go buy her own treat.  I don’t remember her even thanking me, the look on her face was thanks enough.

As I have gotten older I still like to make a difference.  Donating when I can, helping people out.  Now I realize that there is other small ways I can make a difference.  So many people are making things so close to home and selling them.  That’s when it came to me.  Why not buy locally when possible.

What a difference we can make in the world when we buy products that are manufactured close to home, items that are recycled.  For example there is a messenger bag called  waste zero, by RickShaw Bags.  It is made specially designed to optimize cutting and eliminate material waste,” and additionally, the bag is made locally in San Francisco with domestically sourced fabrics. It’s also made from 100 percent nylon, so when the day comes, it’s entirely recyclable!
