Blogging PreCourse and Blogging101

Good News Travels Fast

good news I get so weary of bad news.  I keep threatening to invent a B-Chip for televisions that would filter out all bad news and only let me see the good.  A while back, I even plunked down money for a subscription to the Good News Network, which brings a string of constant good news directly to my Feed Reader. 

The “good news” is that if you know where to look, good news is everywhere.  Blogging has become one of the best mediums for spreading news about random acts of kindness, anecdotes of good deeds, and opportunities for you to get involved and make a difference in the world. 

For example, the blog Round II Cameroon recently posted about her Books for Cameroon project.  This cause highlights the lack of educational reading materials in the schools of Cameroon, where most facilities are not even equipped with a functioning library.  The Peace Corp has gotten involved and is helping to establish a library in at least 25 schools, serving 20,000 students.  All books donated to this project will be incorporated into the teaching curriculum and be available for check-out by students.

If you would like to donate to this project, the Peace Corp has created a terrific informational page about the Books for Cameroon project, including a simple donation link.
