My “$25k for the 25th Anniversary” Challenge
In order to get a larger number of people involved with this goal and to increase awareness, I’m requesting donations in $10 amounts.
Additional Steps I’m Taking to Meet the “$25k for the 25th Anniversary” Challenge
As the name suggests, obtaining this goal of raising $25,000 overall this year will be quite CHALLENGING. Because of this, I’m embarking on several additional fundraising steps this year that I have not done in the past:
- 1. In order to encourage young adults to get involved in the personal finance habit of donating to charity (which often is only adopted later in life), MyPersonalFinanceJourney.com will not only match, but DOUBLE any money donated to my MS ride by people under the age of 30 years old. This is on top of the 5% of my blog income I’ll donate each month to the MS150 cause as part of my monthly 10% give back.
- 2. Throughout the weekends of the spring and summer, I will set up and ride my bike trainer outside of various Harris Teeter’s, Wal-Mart’s, Target’s, Kroger’s, and the Downtown Mall throughout my hometown area here to promote the MS Society and raise funds.

I’ll plan to give periodic updates on my fundraising progress and what matches MPFJ.com does in the next few months.
