No Foolanthropy?? We can fix that.
I know many of us enjoy the Foolanthropy campaigns and it appears there isn't one again this year. I say bah humbug to that; we can do it ourselves.
Here's how it works. Anyone so inclined posts a matching challenge or pitch for a charity and see if we can build a little enthusiasm, momentum and fun while helping out some worthy causes. It can be a little or a lot or just adding comments.
There's already one gift challenge underway with HarryCarysGhost's Dividend Contest.
To get it rolling, for every comment to any of my blog entries or articles between today and Christmas, I'm donating 30 cents per comment up to $150 to Lutheran World Relief.
Last year, it was three sets of school supplies. This year, I'm planning on giving cash - but will entertain suggestions from the LWR gift catalog.
Short of ideas for comments? Links to favorite holiday music are always good. Or, one of my favorites is posting the value of 30 cents in some other currency or commodity. For example:
30c = 1294.5 Paraguayan Guarani (PYG)
Join in, play along, ask questions, help spend my money, have some fun!
Fool on! Russ
