A DOLLAR A DAY FOR A YEAR - slogan ideas1

… we started this site to share our journey with you.

In the process of filing for paperwork, incorporating, starting a nonprofit organization from a child’s vision, quitting my job to focus on this, dealing with state and federal requirements, finding people to join our board, reaching out to strangers about our mission, trying to find people who believe in our mission, meetings in my kitchen… we’ve had hurdles, road blocks and growing pains but we stayed focused on our mission.  Along the way, we’ve met some great people and learned so much.  We know there is much more to be learned and many more people to meet.

In January of this year, we received our Determination Letter from the IRS.  Cj immediately started her fundraising page to help her school.  Soon after, two other fundraising pages were started for other schools.  Last month, we were able to write the first check to a school and we thought that was the best feeling until we received news of how this helped.  That was more “awesomer”!  (Yes, we are creating our own vocabulary too.)

We can only go forward from here.   Cj wanted to change the world by starting in her own community.  This was her dream, now it’s ours.  Think global, act local…

 

This is our mission and we will continue to go out there and invite everyone to join us.

“To help schools raise funds for the children in our communities by creating a simple, honest, visible and effective tool while working together as concerned citizens without personal, religious, political or financial gain, keeping it about the children.”

We know you’re out there… our next pledge.  If you ask yourself why you should, you will find more reasons why your help is so important.

It starts with 1 person, 1 act, 1$.
