This year is different.

It's that time of year when we all pledge to eat healthier, *promise* to hit the gym more, and even commit to learning that one thing we always find a way to put off. Personal goals are awesome, but imagine the impact we'd have if 1,000 or even 10,000 of us dedicated all that fresh start goodwill to making 2012 a great year for someone else.

This New Year’s season, TBD is hosting Resolutions for Good, a campaign to flip the switch on making resolutions and designate 2012 the year of doing good for others. Join us and make that do-good resolution official.

I’m dedicating my New Year’s Resolution to the less fortunate members of my community and the people I think deserve a little pick me up…. I’m going to do good! I save a $10 bill any time I receive one. I tuck it away in my wallet and look for opportunities to give it away - I hope to give away every $10 bill I receive to someone less fortunate than myself or someone who just needs a little pick me up or break…it could be a homeless person, a military person, a student who is sitting at a coffee shop studying…..I love looking for opportunities to give! Who is going to get my next $10????
