We Want to Donate $100 to Your Favorite Charity!


In our coaching tip last week, we mentioned how thankful we are for ALL OF YOU, and how much you inspire us each and every day!  You continue to be so generous with your stories, support and encouragement...

as a thank you, we want to pass this generosity on to some of your favorite organizations!

 

For the first 25 people who provide a recommendation in the comments below, we will donate $100 to YOUR recommended charitable organization!

 

What's the catch?

 

There is none!

 

Based on your recommendations, we will donate $2,500!

The only requirements are:

  • It needs to be a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
  • We would love to donate to organizations that are doing something to encourage healthy lifestyles!

 

So, act fast!

Please provide your recommendation in the comments section below:

  • If you know the EIN # (employer identification number), that would be helpful (you can quickly find it using the GuideStar search engine).  If you don't have it (or don't have time to look it up), feel free to go ahead and reserve your spot, and then you can come back and update it with the EIN.
  • If you want us to mention your name in the gift, please let us know.
  • If you want the gift to be in memory or in honor of someone, please include this info in your comment.

 

Why are we doing this?

Your stories continue to inspire us and we want to give back and help you support charitable organizations that are advancing the mission of helping people be as healthy as possible.  You are probably involved with organizations in your community who are doing great things to help people live healthfully and we want to honor you by helping to support those organizations.

While $100 isn't life-changing, we all know that these organizations welcome any and all support, especially in the environment we are currently in.

Believe it or not, this is our 5th year doing this and we are so humbled and blessed...we will have reached $12,500 in donations after this year!  Over the last four years, your recommendations resulted in donations to organizations such as:

  2. New Life Covenant Church: Teacher Missionary Fund— teachers regularly apply to have snacks provided to low income students and this fund also goes toward supporting teachers walking in healthy mind ESET’s about themselves and their future impact on the lives of our community.

    Love this idea!!!

  3. I’m grateful for my new walking buddy who we adopted from Critter Crusaders, Inc of Kenton, OH. Even with only 3 legs she inspires me every day to get out and walk.

    Critter Crusaders (47-3128139) helps the mistreated feel love and find forever families.

  4. I nomination both Compassion International or Child Fund; They help to feed these third world country children spiritually, and physically. We have such an abundance they do not and I would love it if you would give to their organizations to help those children and their families and communities. Thank you for your wonderful generosity.

    • We tend to take so many things for granted (things like shelter and water – and LOVE). Hope this donation can help make a difference in the life of a child who desperately needs these necessities!

  5. Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Student Visionaries of the Year! Here is a link for the 2023 leadership committee fundraising page. Our goal is to each raise $500 by the end of Giving Tuesday. All funds raised go straight back to LLS to support their mission of helping blood cancer patients and their families. Thank you!

  7. I’m surprised you’re not already partnered with Mercy Chefs. We love that they provide victims, first responders, and any relief workers with a real meal. My husband has volunteered with them in Waverly, Mayfield, Cambridge Shores, and Paducah. Their heart for the mission is phenomenal. They travel not only to domestic disasters but also provided relief in Puerto Rico and on the Ukraine border in Poland. They do not push recipients with Christianity but are thereto answer any questions and pray with anyone who asks. The meals they provide are ample quantity of real food. See photos on their website. Our names Brad and Salena can certainly be used

    EIN – 45-4858198!

  10. I have been supporting Team Red, White and Blue for many years. http://www.teamrwb.org
    This organization focus on the health and wellness of Veterans, with much focus on physical fitness.

It is an international organization with chapters in every state and is a 501c3 non-profit

  11. Learning cove. I non profit that helps poverty level students catch up on reading level. All run on donations and from the sponsor. Targets 3rd graders as that is usually the last time to catch them up to level.
