Time to be Selfish

Time for me to be a little selfish.

You ever wonder what makes people give? what is the catalyst that says.. yep, I need to pull some change out of my pocket? I know what makes me give.  It’s totally selfish.  I feel good after I give.  I get goosebumps when I see someone else happy.  It’s a drug.

So…we put out there that we were going to give 1,000 to a family in need – we got a few emails.  We set some parameters because we are looking for REAL, DESPERATE NEED.  Desperate as in DESPERATE.  After some research… they may be in need and we are completely compassionate but desperate?   nah

Decisions … so we put it out there again.  Nothing.  I am so happy that everyone is doing so well.  With THAT we decided to be selfish and give the 1,000 to Time in A Bottle.   These familes….. DESPERATE.   Desperate for life.  True absolute NEED.

I am a little disconcerted that of our 2030 fans our insights show us that 2020 are active.  This is an amazing amount of ACTIVE fans. We are proud.  We do great things.  Why are we disconcerted?

OF the 2020 ACTIVE fans we have about ten that do our giving.  Some would tell me to be careful… you don’t want to annoy your fan base, it’s social media — you’ll chase them away.  Do you know me yet?  I’m here to kick you in the pants!  If that chases you away .. I’m sad.  We ARE  Absolutely Clean.  If you are here just for OUR giveaways.. fantastic , I hope you win!  I do hope however, that you have learned a litle along the way and understand that one of our missions is to foster social GIVING , not just social facebooking.  What a great resource for us … but holy cow let’s actually DO something with it!

2020 active fans x .25  …. That’s $505

We are collecting change through January… Got a quarter?
