This Week In Impact Blogs: Breast Cancer, Donors Choose, Education And More

Since the launch of HuffPost Impact last week, we've been fortunate enough to feature blog posts from a respected group of authors, actors, nonprofit executive directors and media personalities. Our goal is to provide readers with thoughtful opinion pieces on actionable causes, and our current bloggers have provided just that and more.

Here are some of this week's blog posts:

Joel Arquillos: The executive director of the nonprofit 826LA, Arquillos emphasizes the need to give children individual attention, and what it would take to "level the playing field" for unprivileged students.

Hank Azaria: In his first post for HuffImpact, Azaria discusses his organization Determined To Succeed, which provides resources and opportunities for children living at or below the poverty line.

Cristie Kerr: Professional golfer Cristie Kerr writes about her organization, Birdies For Breast Cancer, for which she donates money for every birdie or eagle she hits in a tournament.

K'naan: Rapper and poet K'naan feels strongly about helping others, but recognizes the limits of charity. In his first post, he analyzes the "identity crisis" in charity, and why being selfish may be the best way to give back.

Livia McRee - An avid education advocate, and the wife of Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, Livia McRee wrote her first post on her campaigns for Donors Choose and how individuals can help classrooms in need. After only a few hours on Impact, HuffPost readers contributed over $3,000 to these classrooms.

We look forward to inciting many more thoughtful discussions on HuffPost Impact and hope you'll join us. See our list of blog posts from the first two weeks here.
