BMT Charity Drive November 2014

Hi guys,

I will be on vacation for most of November, but I wanted to setup a new charity drive to run while I was gone. That is why this post is a bit early compared to our normal holiday charity drive.

There will be four options for this charity drive, as below:

Habitat for Humanity (website)
Feeding America (website)
Make-a-Wish Foundation (website)
International Red Cross (website)

In order to encourage you to donate, any new Elite Membership purchased in November will go to charity --- up to a maximum of $3,000 (30 memberships). I will cap it at $3,000 as that's roughly what our last charity fundraiser raised in May 2014. I've done it this way because it will be running while I am on vacation and I can't actively manage it. Setting a cap of $3,000 was the best alternative.

If you've been waiting to sign-up as an Elite Member, now you have an even better excuse to not wait any longer. Please note: futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite Membership is not tax deductible.

IMPORTANT: After you sign-up to be an Elite Member (November), please come to this thread and post a message telling me which charity you want your membership fee to be donated to.

If you are an existing Elite Member and you would like to participate, please make your donation directly to one of the charities above, and then feel free to post in this thread to encourage others to do so as well. Peer pressure is a good thing in this case. I'd like to see how much over the $3,000 we can raise with your help.

When I return from my vacation at the end of November, I'll tally everything up and post a summary, make the donations to the charities, etc. It will be the last week of November.

Mike

It's not even November yet but we already have our first donation from an Elite Member named @Scalpingtrader (via PM since this thread is still closed right now):


Scalpingtrader - Sun, 26 Oct 2014 06:33:35 -0400
I know it's not november yet, but I figured if I don't do it right away, I might forget about it - which would be kind of sad. So I went ahead and donated 50 bucks to the international red cross. It's not much, but it's a start...

Feel free to share this in the charity thread. If that helps motivating at least one more person to give something to a good purpose, it is well worth it.

The charity drive begins November 1st. I posted notice today on the forum so that if someone wants to wait until Nov 1 to sign-up, they have that choice.
