How do you love to contribute?
Before we dive in we want to remind everyone that we have an amazing Pop-up event taking place on November 13th. Read more about that here or get tickets by clicking on the button below.
We are all contributors together every day. You make an impact, even if it’s not an intentional one.
Either you make a positive impact or...
We want to focus on the positive side of the impact we can all make each day, we want to know your story, and how you impact our world.
It might be volunteering, donating to a charity, mentoring, teaching, parenting - maybe you light up every room with your positive energy.
We have no doubt that you are an amazing talent and gift, BUT are you following your passion or seeing it manifest in your personal and/or professional life?
No matter how or how often you give; daily, weekly, monthly, annually or in a big way every once in a while - we want to know where your heart is - where you choose to give when you do give.
This post and everything you are going to see, hear and read over the next few days, is going to highlight an event focusing on building communities here in the Phoenix area.
This post in particular hits home for us you see, Adora is all about how we can DO GOOD, not in any ONE way but in EVERY way we (together with you) can imagine. We are so excited to hear about all the ways YOU contribute to our Valley of the Sun and the world as a whole.
Tis the Season
Yes, it’s the first full week in November- the giving season is upon us. We start to focus as a society on being Thankful (Thanksgiving) and both giving and receiving gifts.
Why do we do this?
We all know that our world has some serious problems. Problems that are large in scope and those who are addressing these issues are light on resources.
We all see this and unfortunately, most of these issues feel daunting. How can one person make a difference?
How can I make a dent in this HUGE problem?
Why not you?
You see, some of the most amazing advancements have come from the ideas, focus and efforts of individual people just like you!
To help all of us do a better job of connecting (so we can work together on these problems) Adora has partnered with Rage for Charity.
The focus at Rage for Charity revolves around connecting our amazing Millennials & Gen Z’s to their passions.
It may be a connection with an organization or simply the tools and support to go out and change something right now. We don’t always have to wait for permission or an organization to make a positive impact.
We want to learn more about you and how you want to make an impact here in the Valley, answer a few questions below and we’d love to connect you with Rage For Charity.
Ok, enough of the fluffy stuff! What can we DO individually to move the needle a little, so that together we can make change happen on a larger scale?
We are going to be announcing our Adora Subscription Giving Program at our event on November 13th, 2018.
We need you, as a member of our community, to participate in giving back, and not just once or twice during the holiday season, we want you to commit to giving back EVERY MONTH.
Let’s take a look at some stats about how we live:
Average household spending per year on:
Entertainment + Eating Out + Alcohol + Tobacco = $573.96 every month
Contributions to Charity: $173.41 every month
This is based on an average household income of $75k/yr, and you probably know where you stand on those numbers above.
We simply want to get as many people up to 3% as possible. That would be an extra $14.08 per month.
Our Adora Subscription Giving Program is going to ask you to give a little more than that.
We want a total of $15 going to our Adora Giving Fund every month - with all the fees and fun percentages everyone takes out of each transaction (it can get quite ridiculous) we are asking you to donate $16 per month.
Or you just give a little bit more, keep on living your life as you've earn the right to, AND feel even more grateful about being able to afford all of the wonders we enjoy in in our life.
Every month we will give you the ability to vote on a Charity or Cause and we will make sure to tell the story of how you made an impact individually, and as a community.
Phoenix has started to be considered as one of the “hidden gems” in the entire United States. We want to be a positive part of even more leaps and bounds, in the years to come.
To do this, we’ve decided to throw a Pop-up event on November 13th, starting at 6 pm.
Over the next few days we will be giving you an inside look at our event, the speakers (two TEDx rockstars), highlights of all the communities YOU tell us about, and of course - as this event is all about community and connection - we’ll be wrapping all of this around tips and tricks for how to better serve and participate in our communities.
Let’s all come together and build this wonderful Phoenix Metro Community... we are all a part of.
