Let the Love Dropping begin! Meet Jill.

by J. Money on Monday, January 3, 2011

LOVE DROP HAS LAUNCHED! Love Drop has launched!! 2 months and 100′s of hours later (no exaggeration), it is finally time to DO GOOD.  I can’t even tell you how excited I am :) Or thankful. More than 200 of you have already signed up to be a part of this, and we haven’t even gotten started!

Until now.

As you can see from Jill’s video above, there are SO MANY people out there that need our help. Every day people like you and me who are going through some tough times right now. It’s our mission to change the lives of 12 of these families for the next entire year.

Every month the Love Drop community will come together to make a difference and raise as much support and awareness as we can. It’ll start on our website – LoveDrop.us, get spread across our entire network of blogs, continue through our forums where all our members will be brainstorming, and finally land on the front steps of our recipients.  Literally.

At the end of every month, Nate (my co-founder) and I will show up in the town they live to deliver this pile of goodness to them.  The money, the gifts, the services, everything! It’ll all be on film, and it’ll all end with an amazing outpour of love. And then it’ll start all over again the next day ;)

We’ve partnered up with some great companies to help us get started (Groupon, Give Back, Hildebrand Creative), but the very first to truly believe in us was restaurant champs Kona Grill. They’ve been instrumental in pushing us forward, and we’re proud to announce them as our first sponsor. So be sure to show ‘em some love!

How you can help

This project is all about coming up with creative and fun ways to make a difference for someone. Here’s what you can do to make our first Love Drop special for Jill and her family:

  • Join the team – Become a member by paying whatever you want. Even $1.00.
  • Join our blogger network – Blog about our Love Drops once a month! It’s easy, it’s rewarding, and it REALLY helps spread the word (which in turn helps the families!). We’ll give you all the content you need.
  • Give a gift – Gift cards, clothes, a homemade scarf, a bike, whatev.
  • Provide a service – Web design, tax help, legal services, etc.

That’s it guys. It really is that easy to help. Come join our mission and be a part of something COOL! It’ll be like Home Extreme Makeover, only different every month :) Love Drop starts NOW.
