We have good news about September winner Peace Garden Project, right after this quick update...
Happy birthday, Charitocracy! I got you... a subdomain.
If you spend most of your time under a rock, then you probably don't know that OBX is getting its own Charitocracy. To be fair, you probably also don't read this blog, so fair is fair. Carry on then. We'll take care of the raising money for charities. You take care of that rock.
Charitocracy turned 4 years old in September, and I was already planning on spawning a new web site this fall as a way to celebrate. I'm kinky like that. Jessica wanted a subdirectory website. Think
charitocracy.org / obx. But I want to go full-blown craigslist, so obx.charitocracy.org is where the action will be!
Though it was a goal for this quarter handed down by Charitocracy's board of directors, recent circumstances led me to redouble my efforts! In fact, I've been awake now for 52 of the last 56 hours, and counting! All just so I could have it ready for today, the beginning of a new month. And here we are. And here it is. I'll blog more about it later.
Because now I sleep.
September 2020 winner Peace Garden Project
Last night we named Charitocracy's 49th monthly winner. Congratulations to Peace Garden Project, nominated by donor
Griffinan. They work against -isms and phobias in the world while feeding people. They don't just grow food, they grow healthy community. You can find their website here. I'm so pleased that this last OBX nominee crossed the finish line before the buzzer went off and all OBX causes moved to their new home. Perfect timing!!
Now you have a week to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to winner Peace Garden Project next week. We've received a generous pot sweetener already today!
So take a moment to feel good about your part in our collective $1534+ grant to help with their ongoing work!
Have a great October, stay safe, and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
