The "20 Ways To Make $100 a Day" Social Media Challenge

How to use social media to change the world in a small way - by helping "Room to Read" and build a library for children in a developing nation.

Do YOU want to change the world?

Of course you do. But when you think "change the world", it's often the BIG things that spring to mind.

Eliminating poverty. Eradicating AIDS or cancer. Combating global warming. Bringing about world peace. Solving the mysteries of the Universe.

Yet you can change the world in a smaller way - and still make a huge impact. It doesn't even need a lot of resources, money or talent.

What do you need to change the world?

You need is determination. You need a vision. And you need the stubborn persistence to stick with your mission.

You can change the world by feeding a family. You can change the world by nursing a sick patient. You can change the world by educating a child.

Yes, even these small things make the world a different place. A better place. A nicer place.

And you can do it - right now.

In a sense, it is with an aim and ambition to help as many people as possible start making this change that I decided to help co-author a new guide that is being widely called 'the ebook of the year'. It is called

20 Ways To Make $100 a Day Online

The 247 page blueprint collection compiled the work of 20 people who are using the very plans detailed in the ebook to make $100 a day.

Some plans will let you make $100 a day every single day. Others will help you make $100 a day on average by showing you how to have big pay-days once every week or month or quarter. And others will even show you the longer term strategy of building and selling a resource, so you may even make $100 a day seem small!

The ebook shows 20 ways to make $100 a day. And those ways suit many different styles and approaches. There's one ingredient YOU will have to add - and that's passion. Purpose. Your unique 'reason why'.

Because whatever fires you to go for your goals has to be powerful enough to brook no hurdle, overcome any obstacle, move relentlessly towards your destiny.

It helps when the goals you set are ambitious, make you stretch and strain to achieve them.

Worthy, sublime, lofty goals set the spirit soaring to greater heights, inspiring us to super-human efforts.

I want to invite you to share one such goal - for the next 24 hours.

It's a goal I set after hearing from Tim Ferriss, author of the best-selling "Four Hour Work-Week".

It's a goal that will change the world - in a small, meaningful way.

The goal is to raise $10,000 to build a library for children - and to raise the funds BY TOMORROW! Yes, it fits the theme to make $100 a day!

Can I do it alone?

Probably not. But I don't intend to. I want to involve YOU - and 99 others - in the plan.

Each one of us will set a modest (yet ambitious) goal to make $100 a day within the next 24 hours - all of it for this higher purpose, to turn an inspiring vision into reality.

If 100 people raise $100 each, weĆ¢€™ll have a total of $10,000 - which "Room to Read" will use to build a library for children in a developing nation.

That's what Tim Ferriss hoped will happen (among many other initiatives to develop literacy in both the U.S. and other countries) when his teamed up with "Room to Read" to change the world.

And all it involves is some work over the next 24 hours.

You will have to build your donation page (took me 3 minutes using the simple online tool).

You will have to telling a few friends and family members about it.

You will have to mail your subscriber list if you have one, or spread the word using any other social media - Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, Orkut, Blogs, Jaiku, Pownce, Friendster, Squidoo or anything else.

What do you say? Will you join me in this challenge to help change the world?
