Tim Ferriss

My Unusual $100,000 Birthday Present (Plus: Free Round-Trip Anywhere in the World)

Tim Ferriss, author and New York Times Best Selling of The Four-Hour Workweek will be matching for every dollar donated, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000. The deadline will be this Sunday ending at midnight PST, thats July 25, 2010. The goal is to get approximately 1,500 donors at an average of $33 each, which will add up to $50,000 and, matched, add up to $100,000.

What its for you ask? Kids, schools, field trips, basic course material, and literature. You find the “request” that most resonates with you and donate however much you can. All the proceeds are tax deductible. You can find all the requests HERE.

Now you maybe wondering OK whats with the, Plus: Free Round-Trip Anywhere in the World thing about? hmm?

Well, for anyone who donates, Tim Ferriss will be randomly picking one individual who will be selected to receive….round-trip ticket anywhere in the world that Continental or Star Alliance fly, whether Rome, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, or hundreds of other awesome locations. There is no expiration date on the trip, so you can take your time getting your passport in order.

Its definitely a win-win situation. Helping school children that don’t have the financial means to get the best they deserve and have a chance at getting a round trip ticket to anyplace in the world.

There are other incentives…if you read incentive #3 you know what I’m talking about. Don’t mind though…I’m winning that one. Hopefully. 🙂
