Allison Jones, Millennial Leader: How I Have Fun, Do Good
How do I have fun and do good?
I invite people along for the ride.

How is this fun? Seeing people realize that they can do good no matter where they are is a blessing. When people realize that change isn't something only special people can do, or that taking action doesn't look one way, it brings them closer to getting involved, and that gets me pumped.
From there, we build communities of people who care. Of course, there will always be tension, but when we get involved with the world around us, we start having more meaningful conversations and pushing ourselves. I have fun and do good by living as though everyone wants to have fun and do good.
