Making a Difference: The Shine Project

By now, I am sure you have come across Ashley, from The Shine Project
Ashley is so amazing and inspiring.
She is working hard to make a positive difference in the world. 
Just watch this video and you will be inspired. 

Her latest project is phenomenal, and I feel so blessed to be able to help out.
 Ashley is currently working to raise $20,000 for The Shine Project Scholarship Fund.
This money will go to four high school students from Cesar Chavez High School in Phoenix, Arizona.
How is she going to do this?
There are two ways to accomplish this goal and the best part is that you can help! 
The first way is with a CHANGE for CHANGE jar. You can pledge to fill up a CHANGE for CHANGE jar. 

Here is my jar: 

 I've already added some change! Such a simple way to help make a difference.

In October, Ashley will be hosting a silent auction as the second way to help reach her goal of $20,000 for the scholarship fund. You can buy something or donate an item to the auction! 

For more information about CHANGE for CHANGE jars and on how to create your own, e-mail Ashley at You can also e-mail her for more information on how to get involved with the silent auction. Also please go check out Ashley's amazing blog.

Please spread the word about The Shine Project. 
I know the blogging community can come together to make a BIG difference.
