The Challenge 2018

Hopefully by now you have seen the #Dare2Declare project we kicked off this December. If not, please don’t admit it for your pride and our feelings.

We have challenged The Tribe, which is well over 4000 strong these days, to help us train and mobilize the next generation by giving $10,000 before the end of 2018.

Yes, $10,000 seems like a lot. Which is why we have divided it up. Everyone has a place where they could help us. Check out the chart below:

This money will go straight towards the work of iGo in training our teams. It will cover costs at Base Camp, help pay for all of the team leader training weekend, and help iGo develop some new partnerships.

But here is where this gets really fun…and interesting. 

We have developed this thing we are calling The Challenge 2018. And the prizes are intense.

The Challenge is simple. We are asking you to contact your iGosian friends and get them to give to the #Dare2Declare project. Simple enough? Good.

And now for the prizes – aren’t you glad you kept reading? 

First Prize (to the iGosian who raises the most money – AKA The Champ) 
*You get to pick the 2019 iGo mascot. No really, you get to pick it. #legendary
*A $100 Amazon Gift Card – b/c tangible goods are cool prizes too
*One of every 2019 new iGo T-shirt – in just your size
*A stuffed animal version of the mascot that you picked (as long as this exists)
*An autographed poster of the Mayor of iGosia – worthy of a Hobby Lobby frame

Second Prize (b/c there should always be more than 1 winner)
*You get to be the Mayor of iGosia for a day (Launch Box or Base Camp)
*a $50 Amazon Gift Card – enough for 2 seasons of Lone Star Law
*A poster of you with the real Mayor of iGosia – you’ll brag about this to your grandkids
*One of every 2019 new iGo T-shirt – colors and styles will vary but you get them all

Third Prize (let’s be honest – this is just to keep the slackers motivated) 
*A $50 Amazon Gift Card – there is only so much iGo coolness to give out
*One of every 2019 new iGo T-shirt – the good soft ones and also those Comfort Colors
*An iGo Global official water bottle – word is that these are the real deal Camelbak
*A poster of the Mayor – we kind of like that guy and you should too

Are you fired up and ready? I thought so. Here is how it works.

Step 1 – Email me (Shu) at shu@igoglobal.org and let me know you are taking the challenge!

Step 2 – You start texting, calling, messaging, etc. all your iGo friends (and other friends if you are ready to explain some stuff). Ask them to give $10, $25, $50, $100, $200, $250, $500, $1000, or any amount to iGo. Explain that it will help us train students to live on mission.

Step 3 – Send them a link to our donation page. From there they can select a one-time general donation and start filling out the normal info.

IMPORTANT – At some point in the donation process there will be a box where they can add Additional Info (Order Notes). They need to put YOUR NAME in that box so you get credit for their donation! That is how you win and become iGosian legend.

Giving deadline is 11:59pm on December 31, 2018. On your mark….get set….

Some details:
Winners must raise a minimum of $100 in order to be eligible for prizes
