We have good news about July winner Food for Thought, right after this quick update...
We reached the 100 donor milestone in Charitocracy's first month (September 2016), and the 200 donor milestone a year later during September 2017. Since then, our new donor rate has balanced our attrition rate freakishly closely, which has had us hovering +/- at 200 ever since. Almost like that's a magic number?
But thanks to the recruiting efforts of Sea Change OBX in February as well as our new July winner announced here today, our donor count has passed the 250 donor milestone!
250 donors is a real accomplishment, and truly inspires and fuels me to continue making Charitocracy bigger and better each month. This growth is almost entirely thanks to organic invitations to friends and family members! So... thanks! And keep 'em coming!
July 2020 winner Food for Thought
Last night we named Charitocracy's 47th monthly winner. Congratulations to Food for Thought, nominated by donor
whitelin. They reduce hunger and academic risk facing elementary children in Dare County, NC by providing healthy meals to build strong minds. You can find their web page here. They managed to recruit well over a dozen new Charitocracy donors to vote for their cause. This is exactly how you do it: get out the vote!
Now you have a week to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to Food for Thought.
Before you go, check out this short Food for Thought video (starring the nominator!) reminding you of who they are and what they do. It was shot before the pandemic, in case it sets off your social distancing alarms. Remember when we could be that close to other humans without masks?? Then feel good about your part in our collective $1437+ grant to help with their ongoing work!
Have a great August, stay safe, and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
