We’ve Partnered with CrowdRise for Our Holiday Drive-A-Thon

Posted by Palindrome Advisors on November 29, 2011


Palindrome Advisors is a nonprofit that changes how leaders give back. We are the "" for elite industry leaders (our Advisors) andnonprofit partners looking for board members. Matching our Advisors with nonprofit boards is done through a carefully screened and highly selective process. But, we're still a start-up and a nonprofit. Meaning we do the matching, screening, selection (and lots more you can read about below like events and salons) for free. To sustain and expand the nonprofits and our community we need your support.


We're not your typical nonprofit, so instead of holding rubber-chicken plate and boring speech fundraisers (our events and salons are about connecting and learning, not money) we are leveraging the generosity of some of amazing Advisors and Corporate Sponsors to create an fun online fundraiser – the Palindrome Holiday Drive-A-Thon – with some amazing prizes (check out the photos on the page for a tease)!


Here's the easiest way to help:


  1. Select the DONATE button and give to The Palindrome Team or to another one of our fundraisers. $10, $50, $100, $5000. Every little bit helps.
  2. Select the "FUNDRAISE FOR THIS EVENT" button to create your own fundraiser for Palindrome or join an existing one or just scroll down to the leaderboard to choose a fundraising team to support.


First Flash Prize Announced Dec 1st! -

  • 2 VIP tickets to the Variety Screening Series invite-only event in NY for the movie: Tinker Tailor Or Soldier Spy at 730pm – starring Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, . Not open to the public, but we have 2 VIP tickets for you! We'll pick one lucky donor that donates $100 or more from today (TH, Dec 1st) by 3pm EST. That will give you enough time to get over to the Chelsea Clearview Cinemas or give it as a gift to a friend in NY!


Prizes! Every week of the drive-a-thon, from December 1st, 2011 through January 13th, 2012, we will be adding new awesome prizes, so stay tuned…and stay involved by spreading the word or joining/creating a team (more on that below). We'll be announcing prizes and winners as we go. You noticed we asked you for your t-shirt size…hint hint. :)


By the way, there is a guaranteed prize for everyone! Anyone that donates $10 or more will INSTANTLY win an invite to plyfe, which is an exclusive, super-duper, and invite-only digital rewards platform that just came blasting out of stealth mode. plyfe is short for "play life" – with once-in-a-lifetime experiences and redeemable points for products or other prizes – you get points for doing what you're already going online. Nifty eh?


Another prize! anyone that donates $25 or more before Dec 15th will be eligible to win a customer Palindrome engraged iPad2, which we'll sent you just in time for the Holidays.


Team Prizes are the Biggest and Best!- The first Team to raise $5,000 will be entered into a drawing for one of our special mystery prizes. All people that have donated $10 or more and are part of that first Team to $5,000, will be eligibile to win, but there will only be one individual winner, so choose or create a team yourself and get the word out! There will also be a even cooler mystery prize for the Team Leader.

Why be part of a team? It's all about virality! Teams are friendly competitions to see which groups of people can raise the most money. You donate $25 and recruit 10 friends to your team. They each donate $25 and recruit 10 friends who donate $25…if our math skills are right that's $2,775 for your initial donation of $25!


So, just to sum up:

  • Help Us Help You- Donate now to help support our efforts to change the way leaders give back.
