What’s your favorite charity? Mine is The I AM Foundation, run by Steve Viglione and Marilyn Powers in San Diego. Their goal is to raise a million bucks and donate a million books to children.
This weekend I attended the "It’s All Who You Know" motivational event put on by The Millionaire Mentor, Greg Scott Reid. The speakers were top notch (Tom Antion, Dennis Waitley, Phillipe Matthews to name just a few) and they auctioned off themselves for dinner, all to benefit the I AM Foundation.
Since adopting this as my business charity, I have promised to donate a dollar for every 2 new subscribers to my weekly Newsletter Nuggets. People have been signing up every day, so I was very proud to hand over this little check to help.
Seen in the picture from left to right are Denise Wakeman and myself (wearing our Blog Squad t-shirts), Steve Viglione, founder of the I Am Foundation, Marilyn Powers, vice-president, and Greg Scott Reid.
Denise and I are donating our services to set up and train Steve and Marilyn to use a blog to spread the word about their great contributions to children world-wide. Next week they are traveling to Sri Lanka to donate $25,000 and books to the children affected by the Tsunami. We plan on getting their blog up and live so that they can report back live from Sri Lanka.
Here’s how you can help: go to www.customizednewsletters.com, the home page of my main website and subscribe to Newsletter Nuggets. You will get weekly tips on building your business online, including using newsletters, blogs, and informational products.
If you don’t like the newsletter, you can always unsubscribe. But you will contribute 50 cents towards meeting the I AM Foundation’s goal of a million books to kids. I know 50 cents doesn’t sound like much, but it all adds up. If I can get the newsletter subscription up to 5,000 for example, that’s a check for $2500 to buy books for kids, not bad.
