Foolanthropy, Fun and a Christmas Carol
If you haven’t seen it yet, TMF is running a Foolantropy campaign this year supporting Pencils of Promise and there is a match. TMF will kick in $2500 over and above its initial donation and employee match “if we as a Foolish community reach 750 individual donors.” PoP's mission statement is:
Pencils of Promise believes every child should have access to quality education. We create schools, programs, and global communities around the common goal of education for all.
Here’s the link to donate if you’re interested.
I like to have a little fun with CAPS this time of year and am pledging 50 cents per comment on this thread between now and Sun the 29th to be split between Pencils of Promise and Lutheran World Relief.
Anyone so inclined is welcome to post a matching challenge, pitch for a charity, etc. here or with a separate blog entry. Let’s see if we can put a little spirit back in CAPS and have some fun while helping out some worthy causes. It can be a little or a lot or just adding comments.
Short of ideas for comments? Links to favorite holiday music are always good. Or, since this is an investing site, a stock pitch that connects (or doesn't) with the season. Or, one of my favorites is posting the value of 50 cents (or whatever) in some other currency or commodity. For example:
0.50 USD = 0.995 Belize Dollar (BZD)
To round out the title topics, here’s one of my favorite Christmas Carols.
Join in, play along, help spend my money, have some fun!
