I am wondering if any of you can please help? This year I am trying to raise $2015 in 2015 for World Vision. At first I found the idea quite daunting. It doesn’t seem like a massive figure to raise in one year, but it actually is. I don’t know about yourself, but I feel compelled to give. The only problem is, we can’t afford to give that much. Every day there’s a new proposition to reach into our pockets and donate money. I find myself picking a couple of charities and having to ignore the others. So, when I was asked to try and raise money for World Vision as an ambassador, I was nervous. I though that I would just be yet another person asking for your money and my plea would get lost in what is a very loud chorus.
Then I came up with an idea. I’d simply ask for $1. That’s it. It will take me a long time, I know. I will also probably need to ask repeatedly to achieve my goal, but I’m not asking much.
If I could find 2015 people to each give one dollar, then I’d have reached my target. And you know I’ve already had some amazingly kind people do just that – donate $1 and some are even donating $1 for each member of their family.
It will be a slow and steady process. You may get a bit sick of me talking about it, but I could be talking about way worse things than donating to World Vision.
From little things big things grow.
Can you please help? Do you have a dollar to spare?
If you do, then please take a look at my donation page.
And if World Vision is not your charity of choice, then please find another one and give them $1. Or simply share this for me in case someone you know would like to chip in. It all helps.
Thanks so much,
DONE! Good on you Bianca xxx
Donated! Bless you and your beautiful heart. x
Hi Bianca! I read your blog post with interest. It’s a pretty cool thing that you’re doing here and I wish you God’s best.
My name is Larry Short and I’m the digital media manager for Media Relations at World Vision. Specifically I work with bloggers (like you!) to help them tell our story. One of the ways I do this is by creating Blogger Resource Pages with all kinds of resources they can use on their blogs to help their readers know what’s happening.
I thought you’d be interested in the current blogger resource page, which seeks to raise funds for the desperate situation in Syrian refugee camps in the Middle East, which are currently buried in snow. Just this morning I read another heartbreaking account about another little boy who has frozen to death in these camps. Resources are desperately needed to help families who are living in very desperate temporary shelters. You can read more at:
where you can also find all sorts of video, photo, and other resources to help you tell the story.
And please let me know if there is any way I can help you. (You’ve got my email address.) Thank you again, and God bless!
