Charity Power Hour

So this really isn’t jiu jitsu related, but it’s all about making the world a little better and being just a little more excellent to each other, so I’m down for it.

Yesterday my company raised money to build more permanent shelters for people living in third world countries through a non-profit called New Story. It costs $6,000 to build one of these homes, and we set a challenge to raise all the money in one hour- and we did it, with 2 minutes to spare!

What’s impressive in my opinion is how transparent they are with their costs: they have a google spreadsheet that tells you everything your donated money goes towards, which is pretty cool.

Feel free to check it out, donate, or maybe put together a fundraiser of your own in order to sponsor the building of a house for a family in need.

And party on, dudes.
