Millennials: For the Love of Giving Back     



Even though Valentine's Day may be a distant memory, there's still time left in February to celebrate social bonds. Having volunteered with dedicated teams in communities that welcomed the support, we've learned that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That's because connecting through helping others strengthens and enriches everyone.  


Although the Millennials are often labeled as apathetic and lazy, that generation is interested in making social good a part of what they do. One example of what cause-oriented companies are capable of is Sevenly. They've built activism into their core appeal to customers and created a retail hybrid brand. Seven dollars from every purchase goes to a different charity each week. And if you don't buy anything, you're encouraged to share the cause's story and donate your social influence.    


Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.

Albert Einstein

We don't have to go too far if we want to reach out to others. Here are a few ideas you can implement right now. You may want to schedule a regular lunch date with your folks or reconnect with an old friend who is ill. How about making eye contact with the homeless man you pass daily or serve dinner at a soup kitchen? You could share a smile with a stranger on the subway or let the harried mom ahead of you in the grocery line.   


As Millennials continue to struggle their way out of a historic recession, they're impacting people with real problems around the globe.Why not be grateful for the life you have and give back?

Virtual Book Tour         


Please join us on our blogsite, Her Mentor Center, Wednesday, February 25, for a Virtual Book Tour featuring family sociologist, researcher on aging and author Karl Pillemer, Ph.D. We'll be discussing his book, 30 LESSONS FOR LOVING: Advice from the Wisest Americans on Love, Relationships, and Marriage.


It's a myth that romantic love dies. What goes by the wayside is passionate and obsessive love, but romance can last a lifetime - and the elders have tips for keeping it that way.


Interviewed by The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, PBS News Hour, Market Watch andAARP Radio, Pillemer blogs regularly for The Huffington Post.  


Stop by anytime Wednesday, it's virtual time, and enjoy the interview. Just click on "Leave a Reply" at the bottom of the post, then follow the prompts. Karl will be on hand to respond, so ask questions, make comments and share your own ideas.  



Did You Know....          


Women's History Month begins next week.  


For the past 35 years, each March it celebrates the significant role women play in our country. The National Women's History Project decides the theme - and for 2015, it's "Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives." The power of hearing women's narratives confers honor to past role models and inspiration to future ones.


In recognition of this event, Fuze Publishing's latest newsletter highlights Kathleen Jabs' mystery, Black Wings, about complex women in the Navy. Click here for a taste - of the novel and their newsletter.
