We have good news about November winner Outer Banks Hotline, right after this quick update...
OBX monthly pot boosted to $500 by Jen Alexander!
Every cloud has a silver lining. Jen Alexander is our dear friend, Colington neighbor, and Charitocracy donor since the beginning. (Over 4 years ago?!) She was narrowly defeated in the Dare County Schools Board of Education election on November 3. As part of closing down her campaign, she chose to donate her residual campaign funds, over $900, to Charitocracy. She wishes the money to benefit the local community it came from. So the timing is perfect with our newly formed Charitocracy OBX!
With her funds, we'll top off each of the next several OBX pots to the $500 mark. I hope it will attract more OBX locals to donate and nominate their favorite OBX charities to chase that prize! Eventually we'll reach that $500 mark organically, but in the meantime, thank you so much, Jen. You flipped the script on your electoral setback and turned it into a boon for OBX nonprofits. ❤️
November 2020 winner Outer Banks Hotline
On Giving Tuesday we named Charitocracy OBX's 2nd monthly winner! Congratulations to Outer Banks Hotline, nominated by donor
John Towler. They provide crisis intervention, safe house, information and referrals, advocacy and prevention education services. You can find their website here. Hotline is a precious staple of our community and I'm beyond thrilled to see them on our new OBX winners list.
Now you have a few more days to sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to winner Outer Banks Hotline.
Then take a moment to feel good about your part in our collective $500+ grant to help with Hotline's ongoing work!
Have a great December, stay safe, and be sure to log into Charitocracy OBX to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
