Support Stop The Silence & Win $800 Prize Package


As most you know by know, I’ve had to very public obsessions this month: #tweepletuesday and 12for12K’s campaign for Stop the Silence.  Today, I am actually going to attempt to merge the two, raise a ton of money and give away some really great stuff while I’m at it. (Remember, one of my mantra’s is: If it isn’t fun, I’m not doing it.)

Here’s the deal – we need to raise over $8000 in less than a week to hit our goal of $12,000. And if you divide that amount by all the twitter users, that comes to less than $ .50 per person. You and I both know that not every person on twitter will give, so I’ve designed this giveaway to encourage people to give $25.00.  Don’t know about you, but I’ve wasted way more than $25 on incredibly frivolous things.  If you need convincing that Stop the Silence is anything but frivolous, read this post by a survivor of childhood sexual abuse here.

To get us to goal, I am pulling out all the stops, calling in a TON of favors and putting together a Kick-booty package that anyone who donates $25 or more is eligible to win.

This package will grow as we approach the end of the month, but even as it stands, it’s pretty incredible. So far, here’s what’s in it:

1) A 45 minute laser strategy session with me – value $175

2) A four page site edit by @Missive value $200

3) A custom twitter background from Bill Tamminga value: $60
