LOVE DROP HAS LAUNCHED! Love Drop has launched!! I wrote about how you can get involved not too long ago and my friend J Money and co-founder Nate have officially launched the site and giving campaign.
Love Drop is a micro-giving network of people who unite as a community to help one person or family a month. By subscribing to the team for as low as $1, they make it easy for their members to change lives in a fun and tangible way. Each month Love Drop delivers a unique combination of unexpected financial gifts, personal encouragement and the support of local and online communities.
As you can see from Jillâ€™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. Itâ€™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 raise as much support and awareness as they possibly can. Itâ€™ll start on their website LoveDrop.us, get spread across their entire network of blogs, continue through their forums where all their members will be brainstorming, and finally land on the front steps of their recipients. Literally.
At the end of every month, Nate (co-founder) and J Money will show up in the town the recipient lives to deliver this pile of goodness to them. The money, the gifts, the services, everything! Itâ€™ll all be on film, and itâ€™ll all end with an amazing outpour of love. And then itâ€™ll start all over again the next day!
They’ve partnered up with some great companies to help get started (Groupon, Give Back, Hildebrand Creative), but the very first to truly believe was restaurant champs Kona Grill.
