You may have heard about the "Giving Pledge" where 70 of our nation's billionaires have made public pledges to give the majority of their wealth to charity over the course of the rest of their lives. While that's a great start, the real money in philanthropy comes from the 99%. Over 70% of charitable donations come from individuals like you and me. So why not take the energy of the Occupy Wall Street movement and make a "Giving Pledge" of our own?

I started a website called MyGiveBackPledge.org to help people make their own pledges today! No strings attached, it's just a public promise to give back in the future. Check it out!

We've already gotten 20 pledges. 980 to go before the first charity receives a check!

Spread the word!
