Welcome to Change It!

Change It! was established out of a heart and desire to do something about the impact of HIV/AIDS in our world.

This is a huge and widespread problem that will not be easily fixed, but just as the story of the starfish goes, we can do something.

The first recipient of collected donations is Good Shepherd Mission (GSM) located in Puttur, India. GSM is building a Care Center for patients who have HIV/AIDS. The patient, as well as the family, will be able to live in one of the cottages, receive medication and care, help tend the garden for sustainable provisions, and receive spiritual and emotional support until they are well enough to return home, or succumb to the disease. A non-infected physician will oversee the faculty of support staff, some of who have tested positive for HIV, but are still able to work.

Please follow this link for complete information about the projects being carried out at GSM.

Join us as we attempt to Change Our World With Common Cents.

Here's how:

  • stop by a sponsoring partner who is displaying one of our Change It! coin receptacles and drop in your spare change as you make a purchase. (See list below)

  • purchase a t-shirt to help spread the word about who we are and what we are doing. (Go to and follow the Change It! link. Coming very soon!)

  • encourage your friends to participate by supporting our sponsors and dropping in their change, as well.

  • watch for details of our upcoming Benefit Concert and plan to attend. Admission will be all the loose change you can bring!
