10 Easy Ways To Make the World Better on Leap Day

With the presidential primary season in full swing, not to mention all the things that are happening around the world, you may or may not have noticed that 2016 is a leap year.
That's right. This year we get an extra day in the month of February - and that extra day is a valuable resource we can put to good use!

That's why this year, we're challenging you to #LeapWithLWR and use February 29 to do things that help make the world a better place.

We've compiled a list of 10 easy ways you can use your extra day to do good - in your own community and around the world. Pick one (or more) thing to do, then share it with the hashtag #LeapWithLWR!

10 Easy Ways to Do Good on Leap Day

  1. Brew a pot of LWR Fair Trade coffee at work and tell your co-workers how they too can help lift farmers out of poverty!
  2. Pay it forward at the toll booth.
  3. Like the LWR - Project Promise Facebook Page, then share it so others can too!
  4. Support a local business with a purchase or a visit.
  5. Visit to direct your Thrivent Choice Dollars to LWR!
  6. Offer to do the dishes after supper.
  7. Have a one-hour technology black-out and pray for refugees.
  8. Call your parents! (Or grandparents.) They miss you!
  9. Skip your morning latte and give that $5 to LWR’s Quilt & Kit Shipping Fund instead! You'll help send Quilts & Kits around the world!
  10. Share an LWR Fair Trade chocolate bar with a co-worker or friend and tell them how they, too, can make a difference with Fair Trade.
