This was really big news for us!
The first partnership.
Potential for a $20,000 day on Tuesday.
IF we can find 100 bloggers and raise $10,000 on Tuesday, TPRF Foundation will match it!
Doubling the impact in India.
We still need 15 bloggers (we’ll take more).
And then we need this to work on Tuesday. It will work, right?
Thanks for doing this with us. Thanks for letting me talk about it a lot.
Thanks for jumping in.
I love doing it with you.
(I edited the below blast a bit so it’s aimed more at you guys).
|Last week, Tribe Members’ Tiffany and Suzanne came to us with an idea. What if bloggers could dedicate World Water Day to writing about water, and inspire their readers to support the Well Mechanics Program in India? They said they could find 100 bloggers. Becky said, “How about trying to find fifty, this has never been done before.”
We built a webpage on Tuesday and launched Wednesday. Within 24 hours fifty-two bloggers signed up. Tiffany and Suzanne were right. So we doubled the goal. As of this morning, 85 people have registered their blogs.
Friday afternoon, Becky received a call. If we can find 100 bloggers, and they raise $10,000 in 24 hours, The Prem Rawat Foundation will match it. Once again, our goal has doubled. We’re speechless.
Now, this Tuesday the 22nd on World Water Day, we have the chance to raise $20,000 in 24 hours. This will help WaterAid’s Well Mechanic Program fix hundreds of broken wells, turning water back on for approx 600 people each month. This is epic. And we need your help. Here’s three things you can do:
1. WE NEED TO FIND 15 MORE BLOGS BY TUESDAY: Encourage others to sign up here.
2. BE A BLOGGER: Prepare your posts for Tuesday! Make sure to mention that all donations will be matched by The Prem Rawat Foundation and are tax-deductable. If you’d like inspiration for your blog post, here’s a few articles and stories about water and WaterAid’s Mechanics Program:

3.SET UP A FUNDRAISING PAGE: If you’d like to direct your readers and friends to your own fundraising page to track donations, you can create one here.
(This way you can set your own personal goal for you blog and it’s readers and track it on your own page!–while still receiving the TPFR match and helping to reach the 10K goal.)
4. NOT A BLOGGER? NOT A PROBLEM. Set up a fundraising page to reach out to your friends. Go to our typeTAP page to download photos and content to use for your Facebook page or Twitter (#typeTAP) or emails.
We are thrilled. We are so grateful for TPRF.
Thank you for coming alongside and believing with us that we can eliminate poverty and preserve dignity. What an adventure!
Let us know if we can answer any questions or help in any way to get you ready to go for Tuesday’s revolutionary campaign. We can’t wait.
OK. Happy Sunday, folks.
