The Declaration of Contribution by Sam Parker

“How much better would our days here be if all of us were focused on making good things happen for other people? Imagine that.”

Sam Parker, bestselling author of 212 the extra degree® and Smile & Move® and co-founder of, a company creating no-fluff messages and content to help kick off and support meetings recently published the Declaration of Contribution, an online campaign to encourage people to commit to making good things happen for other people.

“I wrote the Declaration of Contribution as a way to help people, and myself, hold ourselves accountable to making the world a better place,” explains Sam Parker who authored the manifesto. “How much better would our days here be if all of us were focused on making good things happen for other people? Imagine that.”

Parker believes this is the ultimate mission statement and hopes the Declaration serves as a reminder. “I believe in everything I write but am challenged by all of it just like everyone,” states Sam. “These things are easy to forget,” he says. “Things get in the way – life’s daily challenges, our ego, ourselves – and we let go of that primary mission.”

Sam Parker is the co-founder of, a company that creates no-fluff messages and tools to help kick off or support meetings, goals, projects and events. He is also the author of four bestselling books and booklets; 212 the extra degree® (about how a little more effort and attention can have a big impact on results), Smile & Move® (a reminder be more positive and service-oriented), Cross The Line™ (encouraging commitment and perseverance), and Love Your People® (inspiring personal care and accountability). All of his books and their respective videos can be found at

In just a few days, more than 3500 people have signed the Declaration and Sam is hoping the message will spread. “The feedback suggests people want to share this with others and we’re hoping that’s the case. The key, of course, is that we not only sign it but that we live by it. We do that and we all win.”
