Dream #11: Raise $10,000 for Stillerstrong.
Why $10,000? Because it's low enough to be reasonably achieveable and high enough to make it "dream" worthy.
On May 1st, I hosted a night of comedy & inspiration called "Seriously Funny", at which I performed my stand-up comedy, spoke about the Dare2Dream adventure and "attacked my greatest fear" (Dream #8). The evening raised $555 for Stillerstrong.
On July 18th, I successfully ran my first marathon (Dream #9). It was an awesome mental & physical challenge but it also, due to many generous dreamers, raised $1875 to builds schools in Haiti.
On July 24th, I had the immense privilege of hosting Dr. Dale's Comedy Magic Show. I was surprised and very grateful to see Dr. Dale had put a small donation box at the back of the room, in support of my dream to help children in the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. Not sure what to expect, I was thrilled to find $33 had been given. Every little bit counts!
To date I am proud to say that $2,463 total has been raised. And, although the "deadline" for my Dare2Dream adventure technically passed almost 2 weeks ago, the dreamin' continues! You see, there is no such thing as a deadline for dreams and...the work in Haiti is far from over.
So, with 3/4 of the goal still to be reached, I've begun brainstorming other ideas to fulfill this dream.
Idea #1: Create the most amazing fundraising video...ever!
Well, by merging the heart of Stiller's campaign (Stealing great ideas) and the heart of Alyssa Milano (The queen of Twitter & humanitarian efforts)...I have done just that.
Enjoy, and pass it on. Thanks....from me and the kids in Haiti.
Of course if the video doesn't work...we move on.
Idea #2: Bake sale.
