Every month Rockstar Finance wants to provide a way for each of us to go out and do some good in the world. We’ve dubbed this project the Rockstar Community Fund, and this month we’ll be harnessing the spirit of the holiday season:
We want you to give someone an unexpected gift.
The RCF has purchased FIFTY $20.00 VISA cards for this holiday mission. We will give these cards out to anyone in our community who wants them, as long as they do the following two things:
1. Use this $20.00 by Christmas to give an unexpected gift to someone in your world.
This can be a friend, family member, co-worker, or even a stranger on the street. Our goal is to show that even a small amount of money can make a huge impact, and the more creative you can get, the better.
2. Come back to these forums once you’ve completed the mission and share what you did!
Tell us the story of who you chose, why you chose that person, what you did for them, and what the result was. Pictures or videos of any part of your gift-giving are even better. Inspire us with your fun and heartwarming stories! (Update: if your idea ends up helping more than one person, that's fine too!)
That’s it – it’s pretty simple. If you like this mission, then we will personally send you one of these $20 VISA cards in the mail to use for this project. Keep in mind that you must be a member of this forum to receive one, in order to share your results.
Are you in? If so, fill out this form (EDIT: We've run out of all 50 cards - check back next month for our next mission!) and then obsessively check your mailbox every day and get ready to do some GOOD
A few quick notes:
- If you want to participate, but don’t want or need to use our money to do it, then by all means take $20 of your own money, do the mission, and come back here to share it along with the rest of the stories! What counts is spreading the love this holiday season.
Keep in mind that this doesn’t have to be a traditional gift, purchased at a store and wrapped in paper. You can use this $20 absolutely any way you want – be creative! Maybe you know someone struggling with debt who can’t afford a lot this season – buy an extra present for their kids… Maybe you see a homeless man on the same corner every day on your way home – use this to pick up and deliver him a warm meal… Explain the mission to your children and work with them on little $5 or $10 gifts – see what they come up with… The possibilities are endless. Just use your imagination, be creative, and spend a little extra time looking for ways to do something truly unexpected and touching for someone in your world.
If you have any social media channels or blogs, please share this project! Just link to this page you’re on right now – it’s all open to the public!
If you want to contribute funds so even more people can participate in next month’s mission, send an email to “j [at] rockstarfinance.com.” He’ll get you set up.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
** WE HAVE 0 VISA CARDS LEFT – CHECK BACK NEXT MONTH FOR OUR NEXT MISSION!! **
P.S. These cards are only good in the United States for right now - sorry to our international friends! (But of course you can use your own money to go do some good and then come back here to share with us anyway )
UPDATE: We're all out of cards! Check out this forum thread over the month to watch what people have done with their Giving Cards!!
DOUBLE UPDATE: We'll be doing this every month going forward! If you'd like to get involved, everything you need to know is on this page: http://rockstarfinance.com/rcf-one-pager/
