Happy Veterans Day + Special Charity Event for 11/11/11

Ever sense learning of the 11/11/11 date being a Special date for Binary reasons and other various reasons.  I figured, why not take action?  So, I did.  I’ve planned out a special event for that day.

It’s always been my dream to travel the world.  Mostly throughout Europe, Asia, and Australia.  There are however other places I’d like to travel to.  I recently set up a Facebook Fan Page to get this operation off the ground.  Here’s what I decided to do for 11/11/11.

First off, a very happy Veterans Day to all you Veterans out there.  For those of you reading this, it’s a special day indeed.  Especially for you Nerd/Geek Veterans.  As they say, “It’s On.”  For those of you who don’t know, Binary consist of ones and zeroes.  Zero is off and One is on.  So, it’s on.  I’m one of the many who are grateful for all the service Veterans and current soldiers have and are doing.

Now, on to the plan.  I’ve set up a PayPal account for accepting donations.  Donations for what exactly?  I’ll be straight forward.  I’m trying to raise funds for my trip to Europe.  There are those who do, and those who never get anywhere.  I for one will realize my dream one way or another.

What’s the kicker?  Normally, I’d donate 10% of all donations to a charity.  However, sense today is a special day, I figured I’d celebrate by donating %50 of everything I receive to a Charity?  What Charity?  It’s rather a special one.

Grassroot Soccer (GRS), an international non-profit focused on HIV prevention and a leader in the sport for development field, uses the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and empower young people in Africa to live healthy and productive lives. GRS conducts HIV prevention and life skills interventions in over 15 countries, to provide youth with the knowledge, skills, and support to live healthier lives. GRS has graduated 400,000 youth worldwide and plans to educate 1 million youth by 2014.

I believe in education rather than giving people everything they need.  This is why I’m supporting this charity.  If all goes well, I’ll continue give the 50% contribution.  That is my promise to you as a reader and potential supporter.  You don’t have to donate to make a difference, just spreading the word via your networks will help just as much.

So, what do you as a supporter get out of this?  You’ll get exclusive access to my videos, photos, and knowledge via Youtube, Flickr, and Blogging, all connected via Facebook.  Think of it as a Documentary series for free, or very little money, either way you choose.
