I just wanted to do a nice recap of the donations we made on behalf of InvestorGeeks in 2007. All totaled, we gave a tad over $2000 in 2007. We’re looking to nearly double that in 2008… as long as our traffic and advertising relationships hold up.
(these below were squeezed in at the end of the year and previously unannounced on the blog here)
– $300 to Karen’s Walk, a 5K Run/Walk that sponsors heart failure research in memory of Karen Decker. Karen was a former classmate of Frank’s at RIT.
– $200 to the One Laptop Per Child program through the Give One Get One program. We haven’t gotten our laptop yet, but I’ll let you know when I do. We’ll likely play with it a bit and find some way to donate it or maybe give it away in a contest.
– $400 to Child’s Play, a charity that gives video games and other toys to sick children in hospitals across the United States.
– $400 to NPR, specifically WNYC 93.9 out of New York. That’s the station Chris listens to and one I listened to when I was working in New Jersey.
For 2008, I’d like to donate some money to my alma mater Haverford College. I’m also training to swim/bike/run a triathalon this summer. If that goes well, I’m sure I could find a cause to swim, bike, or run for instead of getting Steve and Candice to do the hard work.
Any other charity ideas for 2008?
