~The Power of Together ~
The world we live in gives us countless opportunities each day to feel like we'd like to be doing more to help others . News of injustice, disaster, homelessness, disease and potential cures, clutter our mailboxes, inboxes, and our minds. If you are like me, you feel overwhelmed by the vastness of the needs and the limited amount of time and money you can devote to help. That's where The Power of Together comes in. Even with limited time and funds we can still make a difference in our community and beyond.
The Power of Together SECT is how we can help. All you have to do is commit one hour and One Hundred Dollars per quarter. By joining together we can donate $10,000 to a charity of our choice four times per year! Really, just one hour of your time...and One Hundred Dollars will result in a monetary gift with meaningful impact. Here's how it works:
Each member will bring the name of a charity (if wanting to make a presentation) and $100 to each meeting (if you cannot attend the meeting, simply send the check with another club member.)
We will randomly select (3) three charities from the hat, and hear a five minute presentation, followed by a five minute Q&A about each organization. (We will even set a time, so there will be no fear of going past our one-hour limit.)
We Vote. The winning charity will get a $100 check from each of our club members.
The Power of Together is a way that generous, thoughtful, time-limited people can make a difference. No planning meeting, no walks, no races, dinners, or 'a-thons.' No treasurer, no operational budget to manage, just for grateful charities or individuals inneed benefitting from the power of our commitment. One hundred percent of the funds raised will go to the charities. The charities will receive our checks along with a request not to solicit us further.
Are you in? I hope so. I'm excited about the opportunity we have to make a significant difference. Now fill out the Commitment Form and return it to me. Our meetings for 2016 will be held at 7:00 pm on January 13th, April 13th, July 13th, and October 12th. Meetings will be held at the Niantic Community Church, located at 170 Pennsylvania Avenue in Niantic .
Thank you for your willingness to help. Together, we have power! Welcome to The Power of Together SECT.
