This is a concept philanthropic program.
There are three ideas driving my motivation for this:
The idea is to piggyback on any walk/run/cycle events you participate in during the summer and throughout the year (e.g., Heart Mini, Flying Pig, Kicks for Kids, Morning Glory Ride).
Basically, here’s how this works:
This piggyback approach means you are independently participating in events and helping this grassroots, philanthropic program.
Here’s a breakdown of how this program can easily generate $1000:
This website will display a tally of the number of participants, events, miles covered, etc., and provide a source for identifying events to participate in and other information.
~12 people have been asked to participate as a core group. If this grassroots program is successful, my intention is to present it as a package (i.e., concept, structure, website) to established non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations as a model piggyback program.
There is no commitment by joining, and I encourage you to share this with friends, family, and co-workers; with the example above, you can see how quickly money can be raised and how as a group we can support various causes.
In addition to participating, I am asking for your help in developing this program. You can share any ideas with me by selecting the 'Click here' link on the bottom left of this page. Some things you can begin to share with me are:
