The 777 Ask
Table of Contents
If you’re reading this page, you probably read about The 777 Project and asked the question, “How can I help?”
Well, my first question is, “Are you sure you want to know?” Because making an impact requires taking action.
You ready? Keep reading.
There are three specific actions that you can take to help.
1. Join Our Small (And Growing) Army & Take The $25 Challenge
We’re building a small army of 250 people who want to contribute $25 twelve times over the next year. We need 250 people to do this.
The impact this will have is absolutely huge. 250 people doing this will raise $75,000 over the next year. It’s incredible. But it’s also simple math.
Why not be one of those people? The best part is that you only have to decide to help out one time and you’ll automatically contribute to the campaign every month. We’re calling this The $25 Challenge and I want you to be a part of it.
2.Watch This Video about Pencils of Promise
If you want to know the big reason that I’m doing this, please watch this video.
When you get a sense of how much opportunity you have, how there’s no such thing as a level playing field, and how so many people in the world struggle to get anywhere near the opportunities we have, your own problems start to seem insignificant and your excuses start to look small.
It’s mind boggling what you can do in the world if you just stop putting limits on yourself. When you realize that just $25 can educate a child for a year, you start to think about how you can make a bigger dent in this world than you thought you could.
3. Become An Inner Circle Member
Want to step up in a big way? We have a small group of enthusiastic people who are committing to raise 5k each. We’re capping this team at ten people.
If you’re interested in joining the team, get in touch and let me know how you plan on raising your 5k. Please note: this is for people who want to step up and raise awareness about 777 in a big way. If you’re up for the challenge, we’d love to have you.
Bonus: Tell 3 Friends about 777
Don’t just share/like/tweet about 777. Ask a friend out for coffee and tell them about 777. Show them the site and the videos and ask them to be a part of it.
This might be a bit uncomfortable, but it’ll be worth it. You’ll see the impact your help will have.
Here’s a basic script you can use.
I wanted to let you know about an incredible project by the team at IMPOSSIBLE. It’s called The 777 Project and the founder is running 7 ultra marathons on 7 continents in order to build 7 schools with Pencils of Promise – a non-profit that builds schools and creates opportunities for students around the world. I’d love to show you the work that PoP is doing. It’s crazy inspiring.
When you’re done talking to them, ask them to read this post and to pass it on and keep telling more people.
Thank you so much for reading this and for even considering helping out. Help us to make this possible and to create a ripple of opportunity that will travel around the globe. It’s always scary to put something like this out into the world and it’s amazing to see what can happen if you just ask.
Until next time, go do something impossible.
