For months now we’ve been looking into how we might help all the entrepreneurs closer to home who also have business dreams they’d like to turn into reality. We know, like your counterparts you’ve supported by donating to SMARTSTART Giving, that you’re working extremely hard to make a go of your business. And also many of you tell us you could use some help as well.
So at midnight, Alex is announcing his $2.7 million dollar give back plan to help you, his loyal fans, students and followers. It’s incredible! If you missed reading about it in the media, here’s what you need to know.
On Friday, October 3 he won’t just be handing over the donations to Kiva.org. (Of course the money you donated on the final Friday call will be passed on and put out on loan as usual… it’s just that he’s ALSO going to do something absolutely unique and wonderful for all of you.)
Alex is holding a very special call on Friday, October 3 to explain his $2.7 million dollar giveaway plan during which he’ll actually start the giving. (A really good reason for you to be on that call, obviously!)
You’ll receive an invitation to this call if you’re on any of his lists, which you probably are being a supporter of his already. If you have friends, family, co-workers and colleagues who might also have a secret calling to the entrepreneurial life and no cash stash to fund their education for it, then please tell them to register at SMARTSTART Giving (you’ll see Alex has added a special note to that page so they’ll know they’re at the right place). That way they’ll receive all the details about the giveaway and the upcoming calls during which he’ll make the magic happen.
And, if you feel comfortable helping Alex promote his $2.7 million dollar giveaway, there’s Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Digg, Rejaw and a whole host of other social media networks you can use. A copy of his press release is available here (if it hasn’t been posted on the NEWS page already):
We sure hope to hear you on the “big give” call too!
