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.

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.

Glow in The Dark Stationary Printer Friendly Version
You know little kids love to write in the dark, read in the dark, mostly do stuff in the dark. Well my idea is to my books, pens, pencils, paper and other stuff for little kids to do to be made able to see in the dark. I know I love to have glow in the dark stickers, and little stars that hang on my ceiling. I know I would love to have pens with glow in the dark ink, same with pencils, paper, and books. I would buy tons of them. I think that making them and selling them to schools would be a great idea to earn money for fund raisers and even just at a student store.
Reward: Fun for student and also kewl stationary.
