NO-ONE HAS EVER BECOME POOR BY GIVING

-ANNE FRANK

THE GIVE INITIATIVE

WHAT IS IT?

I've found it a bit challenging to know what exactly to call it when asked. There's multiple layers and aspects to this. But I ultimately see it as a 2 pronged approach, with 2 main elements.

All facets of this pilgrimage for an enlightened perspective, I will share with you all. I honestly believe these 6 months could result in some profound answers. Sharing these gems with everyone may turn out to be the most valuable gift I am able to give.

INTERNAL

 

A personal journey of self improvement. A chance to reevaluate the priorities in my life and break free of the power money has over me while proving to myself that I ‘need’ a lot less than I thought I did.

EXTERNAL

 

An avenue to improve the lives of others through charity. To have a real-time positive effect on the lives of those who need it most by dedicating time and money while reaching out to the community to raise funds and awareness.

  • I pledge that half my income will be given directly to charity

  • This will run for exactly half the year. 1st of July to New Years Eve

  • These donations will be split across 6 months. 1 donation for each month

  • Each selected charity will be chosen by you, the followers

  • I will challenge everyone to collectively beat my donation each month

  • I intend to make contact with each months selected charity and donate face to face

  • I will also try and find out more about said charity through volunteering, ride along or meetings

  • I will live off only the remaining half of my pay, no savings or personal donations allowed

  • How to live on less will be broken down, budget, lifestyle etc. #minimalism

  • This will all be shared with you all through elements such as email, social media and the website

EVERY BIT COUNTS, NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL

THE BREAKDOWN

THE FINE PRINT

  1. I'm not a registered charity. I can't accept any donations on behalf of another charity

  2. Although I am a member of the Australian Defence Force this is not an ADF initiative

  3. All donations will be made directly through through the crowd fund.

  4. I won't be excepting gifts throughout this time. Food, money, favours or even shouting me a coffee

  5. If for example going to a friends place place for dinner, I must make a fair financial contribution

  6. I reserve the right to use savings for initiative specific purposes such as merchandise, equipment etc

  7. Half of my pay will be worked out after tax

  8. I will donate at the start of the month with the previous months savings

  9. Suggested charities will be vetted to ensure they align with the values of myself and the ADF

  10. As I’ve never done anything like this before, rules may be reviewed if necessary
