Love Drop Has Officially Launched…Meet Jill from Chicago

by Kristina on January 10, 2011 · 0 comments


Good Morning DINKS.  It’s time to open our hearts and our wallets, and share our talents with those who are less fortunate than us.  You may remember reading a post not too long ago about a new adventure that was created by J. Money from Budgets Are Sexy and Nate St. Pierre from It Starts With Us.  Their project Love Drop has officially “dropped”.  They have already started helping people.  Please watch this video and allow me to introduce you to Jill.

Love Drop is a micro-giving network of people who unite as a community to help one person or family each and every month of the year. Each month Love Drop delivers a unique combination of unexpected financial gifts and personal encouragement, along with the support of local and online communities.

Every month the Love Drop community comes together to raise as much support and awareness as we possibly can.  At the end of every month, Nate and J$ show up in the town where the people live and deliver a pile of goodness. The money, the gifts, the services, everything! It’s all on film, and it all ends with an amazing outpouring of love.

Then, Nate and J$ start planning to help the next family for the next month. Please DINKS, help J$, Nate, and their flagship partner Kona Grill, make this first Love Drop in Chicago a success and an amazing experience for Jill and her family!

Why I Heart Love Drop

I Heart Love Drop because I know exactly where my money is going, and who it is helping. I don’t really like giving money to general causes where most of my money goes towards advertising, donation solicitation, and “administrative” fees aka the salaries of the charities top officials.

Every month I know where my monthly contributions are going, who they are helping, and what they are buying.  Knowing the details about my donations also gives Love Drop a personal touch that we don’t often see with other non profit organizations and charities.

How You Can Help

There are several ways that we can support Love Drop and Help People in Need:

Join the team – Become a member by contributing any amount of money, even $1.00 per month.  Everything little bit helps and every single cent is greatly appreciated.

Join our blogger network – Blog about Love Drop once a month and help us spread the word about people we are helping! It’s easy, it’s rewarding, and it’s really fun! Love Drop will give you all the content you need for a monthly post.  All you have to do is share it on your blog. That’s it, nice and easy.

Give a gift or provide a service – If you prefer to give gifs instead of money, Love Drop accepts contributions of all kinds.  Jill and her family would love to receive gift cards, household goods, football cards/jerseys for the boys, web design services, bath and body pampering gifts for Jill, etc. If you have some goods to contribute please email and J. Money and Nate St. Pierre will make it happen.

Please DINKS, before you buy your next Latte from Starbucks, think about how you can put that $6 to better use.  Let’s Drop some Love for Jill in Chicago. 

Thanks for reading, be sure to watch out for the next Love Drop in February.
