#GivingTuesday & Pro Bono

Today is #GivingTuesday.  It follows #CyberMonday, #SmallBusinessSaturday, and #BlackFriday.  In this day & age, how Sunday escaped unnamed is beyond me.

Anyhow, for lawyers, pro bono is a way to give.  So, I thought I’d share some old posts and links to pro bono opportunities.

Remember – you don’t have to solve the access to legal services problem on your own.  Whatever you can give, it makes a difference.

“One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one.

Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing. Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied, “I’m saving these starfish, Sir”.

The old man chuckled aloud, “Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?”

The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said,

“I made a difference to that one!”
