Hey y’all! J. Money here. We’re kicking off another month of our #GivingCards Project, and thought I’d post a quick note up in case anyone would like to join us who hasn’t yet 🙂
As a recap, we launched our Community Fund in early January, and every month we use our pot of money raised to help give back in fun and meaningful ways. You can see all 4 of our initiatives here, but our flagship is our #GivingCards Project where we literally give out $20 VISA cards every month to those who want to Do Good in their communities.
You can see all the stuff we’ve done so far here: RCF Results
This month we’re amplifying the love and want to pass it along to you to participate in!
Here’s what’s going down for March:
#1. We’re giving out 25 of these $20 VISA cards. If you’d like to grab one of them before they’re gone, fill out the form here: $20 #GivingCard form (We have two rules however: you must use the money by March 31st, and you must tell us what you did with it! :))
#2. We’re giving out three special $100 #GivingCards in partnership with Qoins! On top of the $20 cards above, we’ve partnered with financial app Qoins who we just reviewed on the site to do something even MORE special by adding in three $100 cards for amplified good. They know very well the struggle that debt puts on people, and jumped on board to be our first partner literally within minutes of learning of our Community Fund.
To apply for one of these cards, fill out this form here: $100 #GivingCard form (You’ll need to share your ideas for who you want to help, and why/how, and the top three will be selected.)
We only have 28 total cards to give out this month, so act fast! Apply to grab one of them or take out $20 of your own pockets and look for someone to help this week – it all counts 🙂
If you like what we’re about and want to support us, you can do that too and learn more here (including donating money for future cards). We’ll also take as much social media or blog promotion we can get as every little bit helps!
We’ve given out $5,433 worth of good so far, however the REAL benefit has nothing to do with the money and everything to do with the LIVES we’re affecting. Not only those on the receiving end of the cards, but those of us giving them too!
It’s an empowering feeling knowing you have $20 in your pocket to help someone out at a moment’s notice, and I highly encourage you to try it one day whether with us or on your own.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and for always visiting our site.
– J. Money
