Deed 2: Donation to the American Red Cross

Posted: November 25, 2012 in sandy

After the first deed, I still had the desire to help hurricane Sandy victims.  I discovered that the company I work for(which shall remain nameless), would match any gift up to $1,000 at a 2:1 ratio.  For example, if I donate $100, they would donate $200, bringing the total donation to $300.  I made a donation and helped spread the word about the matching program to other colleagues resulting in a number of additional donations.  This plays into the underlying theme of the 30deeds project; making it bigger than myself and motivating others to pay it forward.
