Month #7 is here! We are officially at the halfway point of the 2019 Giving Challenge and this month we are raising money for Make-A-Wish.
Before we dive in, let’s look back at the first half:
As always, thank you in advance to everyone who’s participated in the Giving Challenge by sharing my posts, donating money, or just believing in the mission and spreading the good word.
We are halfway done with the challenge and we are 100% funded for each month! At this point the initial goal was to have raised $600 but currently, we’ve raised over $1,700 almost tripling our initial goal.
For most of July I will be in Las Vegas for NBA Summer League, so this month’s charity comes from a good friend of mine – Olivia. When we started the 2019 Giving Challenge, she suggested we do this and since we will be together for over half of the month, I decided that we’d her wish come true and raise money for Make-A Wish this month.
You can donate here.
What is Make-A-Wish?
Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish® vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a critical illness. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes. We believe a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us and inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.
Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
I am a motivational speaker on a mission to inspire people to achieve their own definition of success and reach the highest level of personal success and happiness.
