Breaking down the goal/doing our part

Thanks for being a member of the AfricaJack Foundation Cause. One of the things that continues to amaze me is the amount of resources available to us to get the word out and conquer anything we want!

Well, Facebook is a new resource for me and as of today, we have 52 members. We received our first pledge today from the woman who keeps me going - Sharon Thompson.

That pledge made me remember a simple technique I used when raising the initial $10,000. That technique was getting the message out to my friends that I wasn't raising a million dollars. I was only raising $10,000. If they would just dump out their change jars, clean out their pockets from the laundry, and donate the small amounts, we could reach our goal. It worked. We raised the money and the school was built.

We have 22 days left for this first small amount. If every member pledged and then gave $10, we would exceed this goal!!!! Ten dollars is a lot of money to most people, in the world. It's a lot of money to me right now. However, that is only two latte's at your favorite coffee shop or two meals at a fast food joint.

I ask you to join Sharon, meet my challenge and donate $10 this week. Make your donation the thing that satisfies the urge to be different and make a difference in a child's life.

Thank you,
