Though we've surpassed our goal, there will always be more families so we're staying open till Sunday Night at midnight! It's not too late to donate, and in fact the more we receive the more we can impact our community so we're gonna keep this tire rolling. Thank you so much for everyone who has already donated, ya'll are a huge blessing!
Thousands of Americans and families today have lost their jobs and are currently unemployed due to COVID-19, many of whom are also living here in the Monterey area. We have connected with local churches, organizations and non-profits in our area to see where these people are, and now would like to challenge you to help support them.
We challenge you to a tire-flip/burpee competition.
Each repetition of a movement will count as a certain monetary value, and the goal is to complete as many repetitions as possible in the span of 2 minutes:
1 Burpee = $2
1 Tire Flip (small size) = $2
1 Tire Flip (big size) = $5
Often times a challenge is done to avoid the burden of giving. We feel a different burden. We have a burden to reach out to our community while almost everything is trying so hard to keep us separated. We have a burden to pull up those who are close to us. To carry those who are struggling through this time with the strength that we have been blessed with. Our strength is not manifested in standing on our own but in helping others to stand as well, and we hope to represent that through this challenge.
You could give to this fundraiser or to another, you could do 1 rep or 100, but our ultimate goal is to motivate and challenge you to MOVE. Wherever you are at, when everything else is telling you to stay frozen in place, you MOVE. To move with whatever strength you have, no matter how little or big it is, and put that effort towards those who are stuck and can’t move.
We move because we give a flip about people.
We challenge you to join us.
This challenge is open until Sunday at midnight. $1,500 is our goal. However, if we surpass that amount, that extra will go to even more families.
100% of the funds raised will go towards grocery money for individuals and families currently unemployed and out of work. From $1500, $100 will go to 15 people in our area in the form of gift cards to use in grocery stores to help alleviate that financial burden.
For the repetitions, we originally targeted tires, but we understand many of you don’t have access to one, so burpees are the substitute for those. This activity can be done by yourself on your own time, but we also encourage you to challenge others as well (as long as you maintain good social distance. ;) ) Record your repetitions, tally up the total correlating fund amount, and in your donation report your score. We'd love to see how you did!
Feel free to spread the word! Record yourself, challenge others, set the bar, join our team in helping to reach our community and make an impact. If this proves successful it will give us a platform to continue growing so that we not only impact the Monterey Community but communities throughout the United States.
Thank you for your support.
