THE STORY:

It wouldn't be a holiday drive-a-thon without the Palindrome Team in a friendly competition with our Advisors and Friends and Family! And we're also getting into the prizes, by giving away some great Palindrome schwag (code word for limited edition t-shirts and fleeces), all which will be announced soon, but check out the awesome prizes already up on our holiday drive-a-thon.

 

It's that time of year when everyone gives thanks...and we've had many of our incredible Advisors, nonprofit partners, and the community put the question to us...how can they help us grow and sustain Palindrome? Thanks to all of you, we've had an incredible 2011 since our Palindrome Pledge launch in March: with 75 advisors not just matched, but ON the board of a group of amazing nonprofit partners, a host of great events and salons in SF, LA, DC, and NY where like-minded people that want to change the world get to met each other, and featuring nonprofit partners like Beyond the Call, After School All Stars, the UN Foundation, and the SF SPCA. More and more people are starting to understand the power of the Palindrome mission (and team).

 

We are a nonprofit helping other nonprofits by changing how leaders give back...and leading change in the nonprofit world by reinventing the way forprofit industry leaders interact with nonprofits. The old model of check-writing and rubber-chicken charity fundraising dinners is broken. So many people/donors we have talked to feel like their money is going into a tax-deductible black hole. The volunteering model is fantastic, but not where time is a major issue, the elite group of Palindrome leaders wants to find a focused way to give back to causes they are passionate about. What better way then by being carefully screened and matched with a nonprofit via Palindrome? The people and the causes we are passionate about don't have the option to wait around. They need our help now...and more over want our help.

 

Palindrome works year round to support our Advisors, our community, and all of our nonprofit partners globally through our programs (the Palindrome Pledge, StartUp America, Board Mentors and Salons).  We appreciate and need your support so we can hit our goals of 1000 matches, 200 startups, and 25+ salons per year.  Our primary need is simple as a nonprofit startup, we have to hire a small staff around Charlaine and our group of awesome volunteers (she can't be the only full-time employee!) to continue to grow our programs. Our goal is $100K for this holiday fundraising drive and with your help, we're confident we'll ring in the New Year with a full time staff. With holiday season upon us, we've decided to have a Palindrome Advisors holiday drive in lieu of a fundraising party. Regardless of travel plans or location anyone and everyone can participate.

 

We've put together a holiday "drive-a-thon" with incredible prizes/experiences up for grabs.  You are responsible for keeping us in business so we can do what we do best....Connect the worlds best leaders, nonprofits, startups, and "change how leaders give back."

 

Thanks for all your support and love,

Zaw, Charlaine, Anna, Ben, Steve, and Chris

 

PS. We want to especially thank the team at Crowdrise: Shauna, Katie, Edward, and more. You guys worked long nights and weekends with us to get this together and we are forever grateful. Also, thanks to Trag for putting together the new Palindrome banners and graphics. There are even more people to thank, especially those who went out of their way to donate amazing prizes for this event, but we don't want to spoil the surprise too early and give the prizes away!

It's too bad Palindrome team is not eligible to win the cool prizes! That VIP trip to the Trop and new nightclub sounds fun...and the signed 49er football from coach @JimHarbaugh is burning a whole on my desk! 8 years ago
