Let’s have some Fun with Math, shall we?
The challenge is called “Dare, Care, Share” and involves me, you and yours.
It’s an easy but fun math problem to solve, I promise.
I’m trying to raise $7000 for a year of healing and helping in Peru– that seems quite ambitious, esp. in only 2 weeks, no?
Let’s say I have 175 facebook friends- if each person donated just $5 to my fundraiser, that would be enough to buy a 1 way plane ticket to Peru. But if each friend posted this link on their wall along with an impassioned intro about why you believe this project is important, and 3 of your friends also donated $5, that would be half my total goal!!!
So, if each friend donated $10 and got 3 friends to donate $10, the goal would be met!
Metrics already shows approx 1/2 of my donors are people outside of direct friend circle, so we know strangers are willing to give to this cause.
175 X 5 = 875
875 x 4 = 3500 (4= you+3 friends)
175 x 10 = 1750
1750 x 4 = 7000! (4= you + 3 friends)
That seems a lot more doable, doesn’t it? So that’s what I’m going to ask each of you to do.
1) Dare- I’m daring to take a bold leap to live in harmony with the natural world, heal myself and contribute meaningfully
2) Care- turn your caring into a $ contribution of $10 (or more….or less)
3) Share- help spread the word….many hands (dipping into wallets) make light work of fundraising. Share on FB and email, along with an impassioned intro.
Here’s a fun way of phrasing that my friend, Megan used. You can use her intro if you like,
“My friend Jess is on the planet to be a powerful force of healing and she’s going through quite a tornado of transformation as she prepares to leap into her heart’s beautiful call. She’s doing a really cool kickstarter campaign to raise money for her journey to live in Peru. Read more below. Let’s launch her!”
