Hello fellow slicers!

For the past month, I have been working to get the word out about an amazing project for students, founded by Angela Maiers. For more information, please read the post that follows and help me get the word out! It’s a great opportunity to inspire kids to make a difference in this rapidly changing world.

If you like the idea of Choose2Matter, please feel free to tweet this blog post! Our job right now is to get as many participants as possible!

Choose2Matter (the quest to matter)
YOU vs. the world

As kids, we have always been told what to do and how to do it and maybe, if we’re lucky, why it’s important. However, choose2matter is a little bit different. You are in charge. Of everything. You are in charge of what you decide to do and why what you’re doing is important and how you’re making a difference.

We all look at our world and see flaws.  However, it’s what you decide to do to better the world that makes all the difference. Are you choosing to matter? In order to participate in Choose2Matter, all you have to do is choose an issue that you want to fix and figure out a way to fix it. This is called your “quest.” Or, if you already have left your positive footprint on our world, all that’s left to do is to tell us about it!

For example, have you run a lemonade stand for a charity? Tell us!
Have you collected spare change for hurricane victims? We want to know!
Have you always been concerned with America’s growing obesity rate? Do something about it!

Check out our website at http://choose2matter.org/quest2matter-join for more details on what to do and how to do it!
IMPORTANT: submissions must be in by June 7th!
EVEN MORE important: don’t stop doing good things because of a deadline!

Good luck and be sure to matter!


  1. "It’s what you decide to do to better the world that makes all the difference." Love that line, Larkin, and the fact that you have jumped into choosing to matter with conviction and passion. Thanks, too for sharing this site - my sixth graders will want to get involved, I'm sure!

  2. I've been following Choose2Matter on Twitter ever since your mom blogged about it. I'm fascinated by this group. Thanks for posting it again. You're certainly helping to raise awareness about how to get involved.
