When I was younger, I never understood why companies spent so much money telling others about the good things they were doing.
I always thought they could better use the money for whatever they were raising it for rather than spending it on mailers, marketing, commercials and ads.
Somewhere along the way, I learned that the reason they spend so much on telling people about what they are doing is so that they can raise even more than they would otherwise!
But is that enough?
What if there were a way to raise money, but not only for the immediate needs, but future needs too?
Now this sounds interesting!
The thing is, I live in Texas, but not near enough to Houston to be impacted directly by Hurricane Harvey and the resulting flooding.
But I know people who are down that way and I want to do something.
There is plenty of ways to give supplies, money and other things, but what is something unique that I got that I can use to “do more”…
Some Notable Heros –
J. J. Watt and Jerry Jones
That’s awesome, but I don’t have that kind of cash… How can a normal everyday guy like me be a HERO?
More from @stan:
“So, if you donate $30, it could grow to $30,000 collateral in two years while Harvey victims get a steady series of HERO payments that add up to $10,000 – without touching the $30,000 endowment you have cleverly built for them.”
Now that’s impressive!
This morning I decided to donate some of my own HERO to the cause with the hopes that it too will one day grow!
My BitShares Decentralized Exchange account is strangerarray07 and as you can see I gave 1.5 HERO to Help with Harvey Recovery!
I wouldn’t normally publicize my givings, but I want to raise awareness of this special way to help Rebuild Houston!
