1. What can $2 do?
2. How can I thank and honor clients and friends of Pistachio Consulting this year?
3. What do I want most of all for Christmas?
Laura wants to save the lives of children, but she knows it's been very difficult year, especially for charitable giving. She also knows that her friends may be looking into their wallets and crying. So, she's come up with this micro donation campaign:
If you follow the link to Laura's blog post and want to use tipjoy, you can type in your Twitter name and password and it automatically posts the tweet and your pledge. The minimum transaction amount is $5 to minimize the overhead, so when you pay you have to pay in advance for $3 worth of tips. You have an option to pay your pledge right there using your paypal account. Once I paid my $2 pledge, I saw the progress report on the campaign - there was over $500 raised so far from 88 people. I figured, I go back and donate the remaining $3 .... it's a good cause I know respect and applaud Laura for doing this - and figured would help the match go a little bit further.
Let the micro fundraising begin!
