Heal the World, Make It a Better Place

[1] There may be shady folks [2] trying to take advantage of the goodness of Berkeley citizens’ hearts, but not all people who ask for donations are out to trick people out of their money. Many people are legitimately trying to fund the betterment of the world, and you can be one of them (without joining the Greek system)! Here are a few good causes you can be a part of this summer:

On Sunday, July 20, a huge, campus-wide team of UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff will walk it out for a good cause–the San Francisco’s AIDS Walk [3]. Join the Cal team (listed under University of California, Berkeley – 0087), or start your own in order to raise money for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation [4] and other Bay Area HIV/AIDS organizations.

Prefer to get your hands dirtier? Save the Bay [5] will host several Wetland Restoration Project events in the next two months, including one tomorrow.

And if you just can’t get enough charity, Cal Corps has a handy volunteer database [6] to browse, and the Berkeley Project [7] website boasts a list of links to various service clubs across campus and the Bay Area that range from tutoring opportunities to housing development projects.

As for the lazy pseudo-philanthropists out there–why not just use your Berkeley-educated vocabulary to feed people [8] across the world [9] via the internet with a simple click [10]? You can do it. There’s a place in your heart, and we know that it’s love [11].
