Win $80.00 for a Charity of your Choice

posted in:, Review/Giveaway | 1

Guess who is giving away $80.00 to your charity of choice?  You enter, if you win, a donation goes to your Charity/Cause of choice. There are six winners so why not enter to win? Also if you feel generous you can donate to the site. This site is dedicated to helping others and is run strictly by Sonya out of her own limited income. 

Please take a moment and share this with your fans on twitter, face book, google plus, pinterest etc. I really want to help LeanOnUs further their site to help others. 

Okay here are the details from and Sonya: 

What we aim to achieve with this fundraiser and giveaway… Fundraiser
First 5 to Donate £50/$80.USD will receive a FREE Caricature from VoogDesigns!

As already mentioned, the donations that we have received have brought great financial relief. You will probably smile at this… but I have just purchased MS Office as I only have MS Works on my laptop. It hasn’t been a major issue but every time I edit my Hoot-Suite spreadsheets I have to convert my files. It’s a little thing but it’s aggravating and it eats into time.

In case you don’t realise, LeanOnUs isn’t a paid job for me; all the time that I spend site-building, networking, promoting etc is done in between me looking after my family. I’m not complaining as I do believe in what our community is doing but I really could do with getting in some extra support along with financial relief so that I’m not having to juggle my personal finances with the site finances. I realise that I’m not spending a fortune as some of you pay web-people but if I hadn’t been able to take the time to build and maintain the site myself then LeanOnUs wouldn’t exist.

Anyway, as I’ve footed the bill for the last year and we are now at the point where we need to expand/make improvements I really need to bring in more funding. I don’t like to ask for donations as I realise we are all affected by the economy so if you are unable to help financially but know someone who can then please send them our way!

Some of the things that I would like to achieve with this fundraiser are to have a logo made so that we can obtain a trademark and to pay for website hosting for one year as this will be cheaper in the long run. I would also like to have enough funds on standby so that I can cover the monthly cost of the forums and any other costs that may arise.

So… we want to raise £2000. Of that £2000 we will be donating £300 to charity then approximately allocating £175 to cover FundRazr/PayPal fees, £200 to reimburse Shauna for the times she has chipped in when money has been tight for me, £100 for hosting, £230 for a logo and trademark, £200 for forum hosting, advertising and misc site related costs, £300 for a basic laptop, £370 for ‘3 Nights In Vegas’ downloads (estimated) and £125 for caricatures (details coming soon). The costs above may vary and I will amend them as the fundraiser progresses.

How the giveaway will work…

When we have reached the target of £2000 on the FundRazr we will pick 6 winners who can choose where they would like the gift of £50 (approx $80 USD) to be sent.

To ensure that we can spread it around different causes, we would like entrants to have in mind a couple of charities/causes in case some of the winners pick the same cause. We will consider any cause but would like it to be an ‘official recipient’ as opposed to your granny’s, neighbour’s, uncle’s cat and dog. No offence meant to your granny, her neighbour, or the uncle’s cat and dog… but we need to consider that these donations are given on the trust that we will share it out responsibly. We would also love you to use all the entry options as this will also help support some of our community with their pages and help get the word out for them also!

If you have any questions or comments about how the funds will be used, how LeanOnUs works or about the giveaway send an email to [email protected] and we will try to explain more fully. If you disagree on how I have laid it all out here please be nice as I’m trying my best.

Thanks again for supporting us and please enter the giveaway so that we can in turn support other causes!

  1. aww thanks so much for posting this, Shauna! Really appreciate it. It gets complicated with the currency conversions as some aren’t used to it but £50 is approx $80 give or take a couple of $’s. Some days it’s $79 and other days it’s up to $82! :)
