Today I celebrate to morrow I kick off Exponent 50! What if we can harness tthe power of FB or social media Birthday stream! There are very few times people are all but guranteed to pay attention, one is birthdays and with my 5oth, I decided to find a way to make that attention collateral COUNT for my community!
In lieu of gifts, I’m raising funds to support my work with NYukCo, our creative incubator project targeting locals!
I’ll also kick off “Exponent 50” . The idea is to get at LEAST 50 people to do/share support 50 acts that will elevate the wider community. This would run for 50 days
The challenge then became designing 50 small gifts/acts that could impact a wider community! Then get 50 people to not only do them but in turn commit to getting 50 other people to do … the idea came from our traditional a funding and financing article
Brown Bag Special- Save the money you’d spend on a meal or snack for 50 days. Commit the amount serve to #Building black or #buying Black – I’ll provide a list of Black business that MAKE their products locally. If you get 10 friends or family members to commit to this that’s a sizeable amount. as more people elect to do this the impact grows!
- $5×50 = $250 | $250×10= $2500 | 20 participants =$5000 | $250×50 – $7500
- $10x$50 is $500 | $500×10= $5000 | 20 participants =$10,000 | $500×50 = $25000
That’s $7500 to $25000 for each group of 50! At the end we’ll discuss and show how to pool that and maximize with tangible result.. all from putting a $5 or ten into a jar each day! Teh secret is in the impact of organized mass action. The Impact of “Exponentiating” not just with money but with task , with actions…
