And thank you for being you and taking the time to check out my fundraising page!
So... I'm doing this thing where I'm going to run around all the boroughs (Start in Staten Island and end in Central Park). Chances are that during this time it's going to be cold and/or possibly hurricane aftermath weather. To go into detail I'm going to be running 26.219 miles... I'm going to run the TCS NYC Marathon... On November 4th, 2018.
Many of you, or at least some of you know that when I was younger I use to run long distance religiously. Many of you, or at least some of you know that I use to run for charities in the past. Many of you, or at least some of you are wondering why the Children of Peru Foundation.
I'm choosing to run for the Children of Peru Foundation because of Miguel. Over our years together Miguel has shown me the culture and the cuisine of Peru. ESPECIALLY the cuisine. He and his family talk of Peru often. Being able to fundraise and help the children of Peru with education and bettering themselves is a agoal that's worth it and will keep me modivated as the date for the marathon nears.
To the part where I ask for a donation.
Children of Peru Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity based in New York and dedicated to building a better future for the children in Peru.
THE DONATION IS TAX DEDUCTABLE.
When I file my taxes this year I'll ask my CPA if this still applies. But you can donate up to half of your earnings and you can write it off on your taxes.
Demo Time... Let's say you earn $20,000 USD (for example reasons, because math quickly because a problem for me). You can donate up to $10,000 USD and get it back on your tax return for 2018. I'm not asking you to donate half of your earning.
I'm asking that you test the waters see what you can give now and donate to a charity that will help others. THEN... test the waters again later (because I'm not running for a couple months) and see if you can budget a little more.
