When a pebble is thrown into still calm water of a pond, it creates a small splash and ring in the water. But what it starts is the rippling effect sending out waves and rings further away from its initial starting point. The inertia started by the small pebble and its rippling effect is felt far and wide across the pond, expanding its reach and influence across the pond.
I am humbled by God to be a motivation and inspiration to others. Here I am with Bill and Marilyn Watson, Michelle's parents and the founders of Michelle's Place Breast Cancer Resource Center. They are why I #justask and raise funds for them.
When I attend my first Reality Rally (my 1st public charity event), as a Champion for the Breast Cancer Cause and the only one from "Naked & Afraid," I was so inspired by what I saw, that I made a public pledge to raise $10,000.00 and bring a dozen more folks in from my show to help the cause.
All I did was #justask them and they came. Not only did I raise a lot of money for the cause over the years that followed but we now have over 15 "Naked & Afraiders" as well as several others from similar Survival genre shows, because the Survivors of Breast Cancer are the TRUE SURVIVALISTS!!! All you have to do is #justask
I am humbled by what Amanda Collelo Palmer did when she "#justasked" and raised $6000 through the generosity of Harrahs Casino in Funner California
I too last year had a similar experience with Grunt Style and their CEO Dan, whose wife is a Stage 3 Breast Cancer Survivor. All he did was ask me what I was doing and when he heard, he said his company would match me dollar for dollar on my fundraising. This helped me reach $8,500.00.
