The IHRF Needs YOU!

On the Oprah Show today, Steve Paletta, the founder of GiveBack and the winner of Oprah's charitable reality show came to explain his newest venture to the public. After winning $1,000,000 from Oprah Winfrey, Mr. Paletta used half of the money to start a new organization called GiveBack. It is a website that allows anyone and everyone to design their very own charitable foundation.

The process is so simple it is quite ridiculous. You give your e-mail address and make up a password and you have your very own foundation. Once the foundation is created you then get the opportunity to add whichever charities you would like to. You can then add money to your foundation directly, or shop online at any one of the hundreds of participating vendors who will, in turn donate a percentage of your purchase to your foundation.

After you have money in your foundation, you can then decide how to divvy up the money between your charities! I simply love this idea!!

And guess which charity was the very first to be added to my foundation? YOU GUESSED IT! The Intracranial Hypertension Research Foundation. There's only one problem with that though - SO FAR I AM THEIR ONLY FOLLOWER!

That is why I am writing this post to you. Let's set up some foundations! Let's get IHRF some recognition and let's let it benefit from the regular spending we do anyway! And don't worry you can still add your kid's school, the PTA, or any other charitable organization to your foundation, too, just don't forget about The Intracranial Hypertension Research Foundation in Vancouver, WA when you do!

Now get to it! Here's a the link, one more time: GiveBack

...and have an awesome weekend :)
