The book, Your Mark on the World, is coming along nicely and is still on track for a July 4, 2012 publication date. I’ve found some inspiring stories and hope to do them justice in the book!
In order to get ready for publication, I’m running a campaign at StartSomeGood.com where you can sponsor your favorite cause (charity, not-for-profit or social venture) for a mention in the book for just $5. You’ll also get your name in the acknowledgements and you’ll get a digital copy of the book (that will sell for $5.) What a deal! What a great way to show your support for your cause. You also have the option to pay more to get more exposure for your cause and more rewards for yourself.
Now, I’m going even one better. I’m going to donate $100 to someone else’s cause. You pick the cause and then register here on Facebook. On May 15, 2012, I’ll pick a winner and make a $100 contribution to the winner’s cause! You do NOT need to donate at StartSomeGood.com to enter the raffle.
When you enter the raffle, you get one entry for giving me the name of your charity. You get ten entries if you choose to follow me on twitter (@devindthorpe). You get another ten entries if you “like” the Your Mark on the World Facebook page. Even better, you get 25 entries for tweeting about the raffle–and you can come back and do that every single day! And if you do decide to donate $5 or more at StartSomeGood.com you’ll get an extra 25 entries. All in all, you can get hundreds of entries in the raffle for your charity before the contest ends on May 15, 2012.
Better still, if you organize your friends from your charity so that they all tweet, you could accumulate thousands of entries on behalf of your charity. Even more good news: if you also choose to donate $5 at StartSomeGood.com your donation will count as a vote for your cause. I will write my last chapter of the book about the cause with the most donations at StartSomeGood.com, so get your friends together and game the heck out of the raffle and then sponsor your cause with $5 each so I’ll write about it in my book.
