Join the CGI Block Party with MyCommitment.org

Make your own Clinton Global Initiative commitment by logging on to MyCommitment.org, an online initiative that will "give people the chance to be part of our common endeavor," said former president Bill Clinton in the opening plenary for today's meeting, which includes attendance by 52 current or former heads of state.

Clinton appealed to the attendees' "common humanity," so that we can pass along a better world for our children. "In its third year, CGI is evidence of something that I have always believed—that people are inherently generous, that giving makes you feel good, and that the only thing most of us are looking for is an opportunity to make a difference," he said.

Recent commitments on the Web site run the gamut of tutoring local kids to picking up trash while walking the dog. Hey, you don't need a million dollars to help shape the future. ::My Commitment
