Next month is my local JDRF walk in Boca Raton, FL. The walk is usually in March, but this year it is in April, which is actually better in my opinion. For the past 3 years, at least from my understanding, the JDRF walk has been on the same day as an ADA Regional Conference, so two non-profits fighting for attention, I’ve expressed my opinion on the ADA-JDRF battle already as well. My goal is to raise over $2,500 this year. I would love to raise more, but I try and keep my goals realistic, so I can make them, but still challenge myself in the process. I will be posting an online donation toolbar within the next few days. I don’t expect to raise much from all you who are reading this because you have your own local JDRF initiatives to donate to, but it’s more for local friends and families who I don’t see enough to collect money from them. But if you would like to donate, then be my guest.
As CEO of my own company, I can make pretty much all decisions on my own and have final say. Because of this, I have established from day one that 25% of all my profits from my marketing consulting business are automatically donated to the JDRF on a quarterly basis. I do not want any of the $2,500 goal to come from this, so in reality, I will be donating a lot more money throughout the year.
I am trying to create a few fundraisers to collect money before the walk, but I am still working on the planning of those. If you live in this area and would like to meet up to do some sorts of fundraisers, then let me know.
That is it for today, really, really busy day today.
