Make and honor a pledge.

Sometimes it's easier to get started with your good work if you have a friend or two who's in it with you. is here to help make that possible. Just submit your pledge, spread the word, honor your pledge, and watch the good works grow. Check out some of the pledges I started:


Feel free to pledge with me. And just for the record, I do the things I promise regardless of how many people pledge to do them with me.

If there is some action about which you feel strongly, make a pledge, gather support, and, together, honor your pledge. And let us know about your success. The is a great way to generate interest and action on the things that matter most to you.
