It turns out today is #GivingTuesday, a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. So I thought it would be apropos to end Freelancing the Flood today.
It's official several potential mortgage payments are going to help those affected by the floods in CO. I rounded my donation up to $14,000.00 and after doing extensive research I went with Foothills United Way. They informed me that %100 of the money will go to help CO individuals in need, because corporate sponsors are supporting the overhead to help run their organization.
I want to thank Douglas Yeiser (seen here) and Heather Spencer of Foothills United Way for taking the time to explain exactly where Freelancing the Floods funds would go.
Thanks to all my partners that kept me busy this past year, allowing me to do this: The Martin Agency, Razorfish, Digitas, Victors & Spoils, Grenadier, ViTRO Agency, Barnhart Communications.
But I really want to thank my girlfriend Stacy for supporting me every step of the way. She didn't even freak when I told her the amount.
I appreciate you all following me and sending me love and support. Have a great holiday season.
