An idea worth spreading
Create an engine for change using... Change!
Every day when you come home, put the change in your pocket/purse into a "Change Jar" (a miscellaneous container to hold coins: They go in but they don't go out!). When your change jar is full, take it to the bank and deposit it into its own savings account. As time goes on, the balance in your "Change Account" will grow! Every year (or some period of time, it depends on you) take the money from your Change Account and use it for a good cause! (Donate it to a charity, help to jump start a local project, etc.). Also, try to get your friends and community members involved as well! The more people who participate, the more change we can generate!

My TED story
I saw my first TED talk in my High School Current Events class. The talk was William McDonough on Cradle to Cradle Design. Ever since then I've been crazy about TED and all of the ideas that are shared in the TED community. I have also attended two TEDx events (TEDxUofM 2010 and 2011), and was invited to speak at TEDxFlint (unfortunately I was unable to attend). I have watched more TED talks than I can remember, and I hope that one day I can come here and see myself talk as well!
