Road Trip!

I'll keep this short, since I'm on the road visiting some cities in the southeast I've been missing out on my whole life: Savannah, Charleston, and Wilmington. A lot of history and culture to learn about down here. (Also some decent breweries!) Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving, and please keep Charitocracy in your thoughts during this Giving Season. Thank you all! ❤️

November 2021 winner Beach Food Pantry

At midnight on November 30th we named Charitocracy OBX's 14th monthly winner! Congratulations to Beach Food Pantry, nominated by donor obxlisa. They provide free groceries to individuals and families who have been affected by a temporary crisis or emergency. You can find their website here.

Now you have a week to sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to Beach Food Pantry. In fact, we already had one come in!

So finally check out this series of "livefeed" mini concerts (#1 linked below) from the early months of the pandemic in support of Beach Food Pantry. Then feel good about your part in our collective $510+ grant to help with their ongoing work!

Platitudes of Gratitude

Heading toward Thanksgiving and the Giving Season, I can't help being cliché and listing some of the things for which I'm grateful:

  • Kids who agree it makes sense to go out for ice cream on the way back from trick-or-treating.
  • Parents who aren't exactly at 100% health, but who are still kicking and showing me how to squeeze the most out of life.
  • Far-flung friends who treat me like family and entice me to travel a lot.
  • A partner who gets me.
  • A squad of generous do-gooders on the Internet who bring me a sense of purpose.

Thank you all! ❤️

October 2021 winner Pea Island Preservation Society

At midnight on Halloween 🎃 we named Charitocracy OBX's 13th monthly winner! Congratulations to Pea Island Preservation Society, nominated by donor boldpath. They preserve the history of The Pea Island Life Saving Station and African American keeper Richard Etheridge. You can find their website here.

Now you have a week to sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to PIPS. In fact, we already had three generous pot sweeteners come in!

So finally take a moment to watch this video highlighting Pea Island Preservation Society's Juneteenth Celebration this year at the Cookhouse Museum in Manteo. (My son and I were lucky enough to attend ourselves!) Then feel good about your part in our collective $567+ grant to help with their ongoing work!

Happy birthday, Charitocracy OBX!

We've had a successful first year, supporting 12 wonderful causes, and now have plenty of nominees to choose from each month. (The more the merrier, of course, so feel free to nominate your favorite local nonprofit!)

Want to celebrate by pushing the monthly pot past $500? Consider inviting some new donors, and/or bumping up your own donation!

Also, if you know of any individual or business that would like to help boost our impact, by all means let's get those monthly grants up to $1000 and beyond! Every $1200 per year we receive means another $100 bump in our outgoing grant checks. And I'd be happy to maintain a prominent list of big ticket donors helping make that happen! As a business seeking opportunities to spread good will, why pick just one organization to support when you could let us pick twelve for you and really spread your good will around?! One stop shopping here at Charitocracy, so if you know anyone, do get in touch...

September 2021 winner OBX Room in the Inn

Yesterday we named Charitocracy OBX's 12th monthly winner! Congratulations to OBX Room in the Inn, nominated by donor Ltwood@yahoo.com. They organize shelter for the homeless in the Outer Banks, also providing hospitality, food, and support services. You can find their website here. You may recall they also won Charitocracy USA in summer 2020...

Now you have a week to sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to OBX Room in the Inn. So take a moment now to feel good about your part in our collective $500+ grant to help with their ongoing work!
