Changing the world with a $10 bill: Pittsfield faith leaders renew 'Do Some Good With This' challenge

From Massachusetts-

Earlier this fall, when the Mega Millions lottery offered up a jackpot of more than $1.5 billion, people pondered lavishly about how they would spend such a sum.

But what would you do if you suddenly received an extra $10 and were told, "Do some good with this"? Could you still achieve a dream or make an impact on a drastically smaller scale?

A group of local parishioners believe so.

After a successful pilot last year, the Rev. Cricket Cooper, pastor of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, and the Rev. Timothy "Tim" Weisman, pastor of Zion Lutheran Church of Pittsfield, presented an encore challenge this year of the "Do Some Good With This" advent project.

"Nothing makes you feel more grateful than to be generous," Cooper said. "I think the operative word of this project is 'do.'"
