BENEFITING: BREAKTHROUGH NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2013
For those of you who’ve been at Direct Edge for a bit you know I get lonely being the only person wearing pink around the office. That said for those that haven’t been here long, each year to combat my loneliness (and do a little good) I hold a pink shirt day and donate money to a cause for each person that wears a pink shirt… This year I am going to mix it up a little, I am going to donate 2 bucks for each person that wears pink Thursday, October 10th (couple of weeks) but I am having a hard time picking a cause… So I setup a page on crowdrise -- http://www.crowdrise.com/PinkShirtDay/fundraiser/johngraf -- and I am asking for people to pitch me some ideas on who to donate the money to this year and why (doesn’t have to be overly personal obviously just pitch it to me)… If you go to the crowdrise site you can click on ‘explore causes’ and search what they have… Now keep in mind that the past 2 years we have donated roughly 1k to the cause through all of our donations as I open it up to all of us to get involved so the charity you choose will get a decent check… I will pick the charity on Monday October 7th and announce the winner (if ok with the winner) and winning charity… I look forward, as always, to not being the only person in pink for a day! Thanks all!
