It’s Valentine’s Day!
Oh. You forgot.
No worries, The Adventure Project‘s got you covered. Today, they’re sending out personalized e-cards for you, making your life a little easier.
But they’re not just e-cards, of course (when are they ever “just” anything with The Adventure Project?) — they’re e-cards that add venture and impact lives.
Show your love online (yes, we’re green like that) by sending a simple e-card with a major impact. Just choose from one of their four cards (each one supporting one of their four projects: Health, Environment, Water, Hunger) and include a note to your special someone. And The Adventure Project will send it out to your loved one at some point today. Simple and sweet.
Your gift will arrive on time, show that you care, and change lives. Can’t get much better than that, right?
Pick yours out before today ends!
It’s official. The Adventure Project is having a Cocktail Party next week in Soho, and it looks like it’s going to be awesome. The crowd expected to attend will be mostly young leaders and entrepreneurs in the tech, media, socent, and international nonprofit industries, amazing supporters, and folks who just like a good party.
Complimentary cocktail drinks + time to hear from Becky Straw and Jody Landers, two incredible women working on making a lasting impact. They’ll be sharing about the work being done with entrepreneurs in Haiti, India, Kenya, and Uganda.
Details of the party:
When: Wednesday, September 21, 2011 — 7pm to 9pm
Where: 1534 (20 Prince Street, between Elizabeth and Mott)
Why: Support entrepreneurs in developing countries
Honestly, complimentary drinks + doing good? Not a bad combo for an evening.
Hope to see your beautiful faces there.
Once again, The Adventure Project is running a creative and awesome initiative for their Grow Campaign to bring affordable irrigation pumps to rural small farmers in Kenya.
The Adventure Project acts very similar to charity: water in that it is a marketing and fundraising organization that partners with already existing NGOs doing the ground-level work to address an issue. Currently, TAP is working with Kickstart on its small farmers/irrigation campaign.
In addition, for its One to 1,000 (#oneto1000) project, TAP has also collaborated with relatively new start-up site About.Me, which I like quite a bit. About.Me acts as an online business card, essentially (and they actually will produce free business cards for you!)
TAP was smart — they joined with another start-up of a completely different industry/field in order to promote one another. Kudos. Love innovative and collaborative works, especially for a cause.
- So if you have an About.Me profile (click here for my profile!), go update it! Or if you don’t, sign up for one and create your page around the One To 1,000 Campaign. TAP provides pictures and resources for your profile.
- Add it to the One To 1,000 list.
- Go on Facebook, Twitter, whatever else and promote the campaign!
- Make sure you hashtag #oneto1000 and cc: @gatesfoundation in your tweets to gather some spotlight for the cause.
