I have an idea that’s birthed out of frustration. Not too mention this idea is somewhat the premise for the book that I’m writing. As the economy changes, so have traditional routes of entrepreneurs evolved.
There has been an emergence of social enterprises, that not only do good, but are also considered for profit.
So here’s my idea…help as many people as I can, with as many micro-projects in the US as possible with only $1. That’s right, rather that’s it! I would like to grant 92 dreamers that want to see good happen in the earth by donating a small seed to see how much great work can be accomplished within 7 days.
So here is how it will work:
Step 1. I connect with dream-givers to give $1 towards a project.
Step 2. I donate the $1 from the dream-givers to the person who manages the project. The manager will be selected by referral (and competition as the project attention grows).
Step 3. The project manager has 7 days to complete the project with as much impact as humanly possible. The PM will leverage local partnerships, social media, and good ole’ fashion hard work to help as many people as possible with only one dollar- period.
Imagine a lunch item being purchased for a homeless person. Or how about a book purchased for a child with no books at home. Get this, it may even be buying gas for someone at the gas station. Who know where people’s frustration may lead them.
I need help with connecting with people willing to give $1 towards a project. And that will recruit one other person, and that person will recruit another person, and that person will recruit another person, until we get to 92 projects funded and completed. If I start today, this will carry me through December 31, 2010.
So how is this going to be executed? I’ve been reading John’s Tentblogger site..it’s really got me thinking about my site and how to proceed. This post really got me thinking about how I can execute an idea with minimal resources. I acknowledge that I’m the most prolific writer, my will is not to gain awards for literary greatness, but to faith fight for a higher calling.
Here it goes:
Idea: I want to inspire and impact good everyday
Execute: I will provide $1 to an individual for the remainder of the year to do good
Result: Light will spread throughout earth everyday 2X
