It seems like there's not much you can buy with one dollar these days. Yet there are so many people who would be overcome with deep gratitude if you simply gave them one. In New York City there is no shortage of people in need. There are hungry, disheartened people lining the streets and the subway cars. A dollar can be a lifeline. Yet we all get that feeling that a dollar isn't enough. That even though we give, it's still just a drop in the bucket. Sometimes that feeling is the very thing that keeps us from giving a dollar. We think, "a dollar is so little".
Today I was chatting with Nicole, our founder, she told me about her dream of creating a viral challenge that could lead to a boost in funds for our new non profit organization, Mindful Health Gives.
We talked about this "giving conundrum" that plagues all of us from time to time. We agreed that there's a definite feeling of preemptive defeat going around. We're constantly giving to charities, special causes, clients, family, friends and there always seems to be someone vulnerable who we missed.
We decided that although we should always try, we can't single handedly change the world. But we can definitely change it together. We decided that our first campaign for Mindful Health Gives would be a Mindful Health Gives one dollar donation challenge #Mindfuldollar
Nicole had figured out that if everyone of our followers on social media gave just a dollar, we would have nearly $30,000! This would be enough to send an entire group of women who's lives have been affected by cancer on an incredible Women's Retreat getaway. They would be gifted with luxe accommodations, pampering, wellness education, healing services and the connections garnered at these events would be a lifeline to any woman who's suffering from cancer, newly diagnosed, in transition, or even a woman caring for another who's ill.
We've all lost so many important people to cancer. If we haven't, we've watched them suffer and we're hoping to bring an end to that suffering. We want to give women who've been through too much a chance to revive and feel whole again. This has always been the mission.
Now, we have a way to make this happen, and it only costs a dollar :)
