The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I see it, is service to a fellow human being.
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
Living Philanthropic: Give Anything, But Up!
As Year 2 of Living Philanthropic winds down over the next 11 days, I wanted to give a little update. In year 1, we banded together to raise $20K for 365+ charities. In year 2, we teamed up to raise another $32K for charity. Our total combined impact for the past 2 years of Living Philanthropic is $52,496! That’s an amazing number, but I want to say we are not done quite yet.
My personal motto is: Give Anything, but up.
Which means for continued success in anything you do, you have to keep giving anything you can, just don’t give up.
As I work to hash out the details of Year 3, we are going to continue the monthly featured charities, but I am working hard to get another program off the ground for year 3 of Living Philanthropic. More details to come soon.
I wanted to personally say thank you for all the support and drive you have shown over the past 2 years, your messages and generosity towards the greater good are a constant inspiration and our success is a collective one.
I would love to close out these 11 days in style, here are a couple ways you can help!
2. Pledge $11 (a dollar per each day left in March as of this post) to Bottom Line, the featured charity for March on Crowdrise. The first $1,000 in donations will be matched! http://crowdrise.com/lp-mar12
3. Submit a Guest Blog Post. After you make a donation, consider writing a guest blog post. http://bit.ly/lp-blogger
