Local "Society" Fund Printer Friendly Version
I think it would be a fantastic idea for companies to have an optional "local society" fund. I know a lot of companies have a "social" fund in which employees can opt in or opt out. Even something as little as $10 per month can help immensely. For example, if there is a workplace that had even 30 employees contributing to a local society fund, that would come to a total of $3600 per year for causes to the local society fund, which could be helping their local society out in any way, shape or form. Some things I would do are: building homeless shelters, operating another food bank, buying toys and clothing for women and children's shelters, etc. I think it would be a great idea, a little can go a long ways. $10/month to a local society fund among several employees can change a lot of lives.

"Bet and Win" Fund Printer Friendly Version
Betting on sport events is somehow similar to stock trading: Complete amateurs can lose a lot of money, but for the expert, it's a serious source of income.
Because picking the right stocks can be tricky, a lot of people choose to buy fund shares and have an expert take care of their money. The obvious advantage is that someone can work on the stocks full-time, and due to the large amounts of money involved, any transaction generating even a small percentage is worthwhile.
I am sure that a true sports expert could do a similar job by placing money on sports bets: With enough time and experience, it would be possible to determine which bets - compared with the risk - have the best odds, and dividing the risk among many bets, the flow of profits could be rather continuous.
Reward: Consider me as a fund manager.

Read a Newspaper, Plant a Tree Printer Friendly Version
How many trees are cut down to make newspapers? In an effort to offset this deforestation, all the major newspapers for one day in the year, could add just 1c / 1p or their price. The profit from the action could be pooled together and ploughed straight back into a fund specifically created to plant trees. If all the major newspapers did it, then it would create a level playing ground, price wise, for that one day and no customer would defect to another paper on price. Even if just one newspaper took the initiative for one day, it would help.
