All The Good We Can
As you know, I recently founded ALL THE GOOD WE CAN, a movement raising awareness as to how you can help better the lives of those who need us to keep fighting for them.
I am so happy to report that ALL THE GOOD WE CAN (ATGWC) has been getting great traction since it's official launch in December. ATGWC is predicated on the belief that engagement can change hearts and minds, which ultimately leads to changes in our society. Therefore, none of the over 200 actions on the ATGWC website require a financial contribution. Instead, they simply require passion & engagement. I am confident that ATGWC will continue to grow and inspire people across this country. In order to maximize the good we can do, we must spread ATGWC's message. Unfortunately, spreading messages isn't free. I believe that ATGWC can stay true to its roots by ensuring that all of its "actions" are free to those who wan't to make a difference while targeting big donors for fundraising. Of course, a big donor wants the ability to take a tax "write off" for any charitable contribution made. In order to do so, ATGWC must have 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Non-Profit Organization status. There are many steps required to obtain 501(c)(3) status, such as registering as a Corporation in New York State, creating Corporate governance documents, and submitting applications to the IRS-- all of which have filing fees (the IRS 501(c)(3) application filing fee itself is $400). Those of you who know me know that I have spent every waking moment pouring my heart into ATGWC over the last two months. Additionally, I personally pay for all overhead costs associated with ATGWC (monthly website fees, monthly email service fees, subscription list fees, domain registration, P.O. Box fees, telephone line fees, etc.)- and I will continue to do so, as ATGWC is my passion. Knowing, however, that 501(c)(3) status is necessary to ensure continued growth for ATGWC, it is with great pride and humility that I am reaching out for financial contributions. Any amount you give will go directly to the fees associated with obtaining 501(c)(3) status. In the event the funds raised exceed the associated costs, every penny will be put towards advertising-- the more people we reach, the more good we can do. You have my word that I will not take a single penny. So, if you have a few dollars to spare and are willing to join me in my efforts to remind Americans that we have the power to make change, please know that I will be forever grateful.
