Help Support Entrepreneurship: The Curry BizCamp


I don’t often get a chance to promote charitable causes on this website.  However, I’ve recently become involved with fund-raising for The Curry BizCamp.  The BizCamp is a program dedicated to training underprivileged kids the basic skills of entrepreneurship and starting a business.

Although I don’t come from an underprivileged background, being introduced to entrepreneurship and the idea of running my own business was a life-changing event.  Much of my productivity, goal-setting and other self-improvement pursuits started when the original idea of entrepreneurship was planted in my head.  I think encouraging others to go down a similar path, especially those who might not have the environment or role models to spark those ideas, is a fantastic opportunity.

Until October 20th, I’ll be accepting donations to go towards the BizCamp.  I was introduced to the BizCamp through a class, so on the 20th, I’ll be writing a check for the total amount donated in that period to the BizCamp itself.  I’m collecting the donations personally in part because it is needed for my records as a fund-raiser, and also so I can make my own offer to sweeten the deal.

Donate and Get Free Stuff (PBS-style)

It wouldn’t be much of a promotion if I wasn’t willing to put in something myself, so here’s the deal:

Anyone who donates over:

I expect that my income from the website will go down as a result of people buying the books through donations and not through sales, so this is a part of my contribution to the BizCamp.

If you’re interested in donating and getting some good karma can just click here.  I will be using the provided PayPal address to follow-up about any e-books or additional information.  If you want to contact me with a different email, just send me a message with the PayPal email you used to donate along with the address  you’d prefer for follow-up contact.

You can read more about what happens at the BizCamp here.

I’m a big believer that educating people to be self-starters is better than giving handouts, and the BizCamp fits in with that philosophy perfectly.  So if you’d like to help, donate today.

    It’s great that your spreading your passion to enable other people’s lives. I’m also a Canadian entrepreneurship student (Ryerson University in Toronto) and your passage above sums up my experience.

    Coincidentally, my birthday is the same day you’re accepting donations until.

    I hope our donations spark the entrepreneurial spirit of the campers.

    Best,
    Chris
