My Pledge

I DVR Oprah. It's one of my guilty pleasures. On Monday's Oprah, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher were on the show talking about their Presidential Pledge effort. I went online and watched the video and I must say, I did feel inspired to make a pledge to do something myself.

MySpace Celebrity and Katalyst present The Presidential Pledge

So, in the spirit of the Presidential Pledge here are my pledges:

1) I pledge to recycle more and make greener choices.
2) I pledge to stop using plastic at the grocery store.
3) I pledge to donate blood on a consistent basis.
4) I pledge to donate my time to a cause I'm passionate about (American Cancer Society).

OK,I'd like to preface this with, I support our President, Barrack Obama.

That said, I'm a littl worried.

There's a slight "Jim Jones" feel to this all.

As with every other president, Obama has 100 days to make a move.

On what?

Which one?

There are so many.

So, I Pledge.

But I want to know what the game plan is first.

I think that's great. You made me feel inspired without feeling guilty. I'll think of something too.

That's fantastic and inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

I pledge to take the time to really educate my child on why all of these things are so important and work with him to help pick one (or two or three!) cause that we can do together and make a difference.

I was totally in the theater where they filmed that show on Monday!!

@sarahreed, our President does have a bit of a following ... something I don't think we've seen in a long, long time. But if you're paying attention to the news, his actions already show his "plan". People seem to be concerned about his plan ... though he was more active as a president-elect than the actual president was. The proof's in the pudding, my friend. Fear not!
