Do You Have to Change for Change?

Do you have to change for change? In some ways, yes. We all need to change a bit - get a grip on ourselves, go solar, stop stereotyping... the list goes on and on.
But can we still do what we love to do - and make a difference in the world?
The answer is: Yes. You can do what you love to do, and make a difference in the world.
I'll give you an example:
There is a New Zealand Chocolate Company called Bull Rush Chocolates. And, recently, they made a difference, just by doing their job.
It all started with the Guiness Book of World Records, which I think we have all heard of. If you haven't, check out this link:http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/
Anyway, Bull Rush set out to beat the world record for the longest bar of chocolate in the world. They succeeded with a 180kg bar of dark chocolate that stretched for over 15 metres! It was worth over $6000, and the Bull Rush Chocolate Company sold it in slabs.
How did this make a difference? Well, Bull Rush Chocolates donated the entire proceeds from the sale of the chocolate bar to the Christchurch Foundation, to help with the rebuilding of earthquake-struck areas.
This made a difference in the world.
And it proves that, yes, you can do what you love and still make a difference.
