BOMF asking for help…

leave a comment »

From the founder of Back on My Feet:

BOMF has a job opening that is a perfect fit for one of our members – Isaac Lincoln, Sr. Isaac’s job would entail managing all of our merchandise, inventory and incentives as well as be responsible for selling BOMF shirts, which is steady revenue for the organization. BOMF is growing at an extraordinary rate – we currently have 6 teams with 112 members and are adding 30 new members per month and a new team every two months…and this is just in Philadelphia. Many of you know that we are launching our pilot program in Baltimore in March, which is also keeping us extra busy. This position was not projected in our budget for 2009, but it’s very apparent that adding another team member is necessary to keep the BOMF sustainable and moving forward. Nothing would make me happier than for this position to be filled by one of our members who has earned this opportunity by demonstrating extraordinary character and impressive work ethic.

However, to do this – we have to raise the extra funds to pay for Isaac and this is where I’m asking for help. We have created a specific campaign to raise the money to hire Isaac, which you can see here- I know everyone’s budget is different, but if we all help just a little, we’ll get there one dollar at a time.

Thanks very much for considering this and have a great weekend


From me: Every penny counts. I’ve met Isaac personally and he’s a great man who is literally getting back on his feet. Please help if you’re able.

giving back…

leave a comment »

back in december i ran a cans for comments campaign. the purpose…comments = cans…resulting in equivalent donations to a local food shelter. in the end, i translated my cans to dollars and rounded the total up to $100.

some good friends decided to match my contribution. mike contributed to moveable feast. scott gave me a $100 cash to tack on to wherever i was donating. thanks so much guys!

i have been deliberating over where to donate for quite some time. jennifer (a friend/co-worker of scott’s) made me aware of a philly charity….back on my feet…that is starting up a pilot program in baltimore. one look at their website and i was blow away by the unique approach and the amazing effort in progress.

i found my charity!

that being said, i took my $100 and scott’s $100…tacked on another $50 to make it nice and round….and made a donation. i’m hoping whoever reads this might take a minute or two to check out back on my feet and decide to donate whatever they can to the cause…whether it be time, money…or in my case…photography.

i’m running an active campaign to support the baltimore chapter HERE.

any local yocals that have an interest in attending the kick-off meeting, please check out the evite HERE. hope to see you there.

thanks everyone!
