I’ve fed a hungry person.
I’ve seen someone with a sign saying they were homeless and hungry, driven to McDonalds, bought some food and brought it back. I’ve given money to complete strangers who ask for change. I’ve donated clothes for people who need it. I’ve given someone a ride.
I’ve retweeted stuff.
You know the drill. Retweet this message and @soandso will donate a $1 to some good cause. I’ve clicked links, I’ve facebooked shared stuff. I’ve clicked like buttons; all in the name of “Social Good”.
I’m going to admit something to you: I’ve never given money online for something good. Oh, I’ll help spread the word, but I’ve never forked over even one dollar online for a social good campaign. I’ve never donated money online, until today. In the spirit of an #usguys themed blog post, I became a V.I.P. member of Love Drop.
What’s this LoveDrop?
LoveDrop was founded by Nate St. Pierre and J. Money. These guys are super cool and really care about stuff. I have the honor of seeing Nate on a fairly regular basis and I was able to meet J. Money in Austin at SXSW. Each month they find someone with a big need and then fill it. But that can’t happen without you and me.
Let’s get involved with LoveDrop.
You and me, buddy. We can do this together. If you’ve made it this far in my post, I’m hoping you’ll do two things for me. The first thing is easy, and I’ve probably done it for you in the past. Retweet this, so we can encourage more people to join LoveDrop. Second thing is easy, too. Get your paypal account ready and DROP SOME LOVE. Consider giving a monthly amount that’s going to remind you each time it hits that you’re making a difference.
I did it and you can do it too. Seriously, let’s help these guys out. I’ll see you at the Love Drop end-of-year celebration event.
