I Will Give $100 to Your Favorite Charity Challenge
Ever hear the saying, “Kill two birds with one stone?” It’s a challenge, but great fun when it works (figuratively speaking of course)! Well, that’s the reason I will give $100 to your favorite charity. I am attempting to maximize $100 in more than one way.
Out of Time
Today I’m headed to my first Tony Robbins UPW (Unleash The Power Within) Event with a couple of friends. I have a feeling it’s going to be epic! We’ll be spending Thursday-Sunday in Los Angeles working to blast away personal limitations and set new goals. I’m so excited!
The only problem, is that I’m running out of time. I still need to pack, prepare, and ensure my family is completely taken care of in my absence (thanks Grandma!). But on the flip side, I recently joined the Yakezie Challenge and made a promise to produce content at least twice per week.
Once I’m at the UPW seminar, I’m pretty sure I won’t have anymore time to write the remainder of this week. So, I need to get something down now, but NOT just fluff… I hate that.
Luckily, I have an IDEA…
Asking For Help!
Okay, so I’m going to need YOUR HELP to pull this off! Don’t worry tho, it’ll be FUN, and for a GREAT CAUSE. 🙂
If there is one thing that I’ve started learning about my audience and generally those who come to PF (personal finance) sites, is that we are people of passion. We are not willing to settle for the status quo, and we are driven to make positive change! Did I get that right?
Good! Well, I’m also willing to bet that you are a person of compassion and have certain charitable causes you believe DEEPLY in.
How You Can Help
Leave a comment below and tell me about a charitable organization you would like me to send $100 to.
What is your cause and the non-profit organization that supports it? Why is it important to you? How does it impact others?
(Please limit your comment to 250 words or less, and have FUN!)
Selecting a Winner
I will gladly accept comments up through October 31st, 2015. On November 1st, I will announce the winner of my favorite comment (I suspect this will be the hard part) and I will donate $100 directly to your charitable organization in honor of YOU! I will also update this post to feature your cause here.
It doesn’t get any simpler than that. And, being that I’m a newer blog with a smaller audience, you’ve definitely got a decent chance of winning by virtue of the odds alone!
Hopefully this is a win-win for everyone! You’ll be helping me to create awesome content in the comments, we’ll get to share about our individual causes/organizations, and I’ll have another $100 tax deduction for 2015. 🙂 Go for it!
Congratulations to my winner for the $100 donation, Sarah! Her shared charity is the Prison Book Program.
I think everyone needs a second chance sometimes. To make poor choices is human. And, most prisoners have probably made their fair share. But, all too often our society is happy to simply lock offenders away and throw away the key.
That’s why I love this program. It shows prisoners that people on the outside still care about them and are sharing knowledge that can enrich their minds while they do their time. It gives them a chance to become educated and learn about new choices they can make in life. That’s inspiring to me.
I wasn’t kidding when I said it was REALLY difficult to choose.
– Hannah’s organization World Vision is a huge leader in ending suffering around the world!
– HW’s New Horizon’s Ranch & Center is so awesome to help children that need that extra love and support during dark times.
– Albert’s Jus Sayin’ organization provides nurturing and supplies for the homeless in my home city of SD.
So, I had to cheat a little. As a small thank you for those who participated, I’ve donated an additional $50 each to their organizations.
Thanks for all who participated!
