There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can’t. What you’ve got to do is turn around and say, ‘watch me’.
Year 2 of Living Philanthropic comes to a close, thank you for all the support and generosity. We made another impact this year, our running reported total has hit a grand total of $54,314!! Amazing! Let’s keep it going for Year 3!
For Year 3, I am working on a few goals:
- Create the Living Philanthropic Foundation - with a mission to help raise awareness for non-profits through a series of programs
- A top secret project - more details soon
- Monthly Featured Charities - Moving projects to GiveBack so 100% of all funds raised go directly to the organizations. 100%!
- Pledge $1 a day to Charity. Will you join me?

826CHI is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Their services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.With this in mind, they provide drop-in tutoring, after-school workshops, field trips, in-school tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications.All of their programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student’s power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.

Living Philanthropic was founded in April 2010 as one man’s mission to give to charity everyday for a year. This mission is built on a belief that you don’t have to be rich in dollars to make a difference; you only need to be rich in spirit. After completing his 365 day mission, the spirit of giving everyday carries on through his friends and in his mission to continue his micro-philanthropy for a third year.
We are programmed for compassion, heroism, and love.
Let your heart feel for the afflictions and distresses of every one, and let your hand give in proportion to your purse. - George Washington #giveeveryday
Procrastination is a way of protecting yourself from all the things you’re afraid might happen. The cure to procrastination is Action.
I like this quote, it can apply to many things in life, including “giving”.
