Are you up to having some fun…
the 1st annual World Series Volunteer Challenge starts now! Even if you are not a baseball fan, anyone can play. The bet is this: The Phillies and the Rays start playing in the World Series starting tomorrow. Just pick a team, game by game. The series winner is the first to win 4 games out of a possible 7 total. If your team loses, you agree to volunteer locally for a total of 10 hours per game. Teens can get involved too. You pay nothing to enter. Nobody makes a dime on this, but the charity or service that you volunteer for gains a lot, and in the end so do you. All in the name of fun! The only stipulation is that you are to receive no monetary gain in this endeavor. Not even a t-shirt.
Ideally I would like to have 10 people for each team; total of 20 but I won’t limit it if more want to jump on in. Since there is no buy in and the volunteering is done locally to where you live, this has to be on the honor system. If you agree to take the challenge, just make a reply below choosing either the Philadelphia Phillies or the Tampa Bay Rays to win the first game. You may change teams game to game if you so desire; I’m not picky.
Imagine the possibility…. 10 people x 10 hours x 7(max) games = 700 volunteer hours spread all over the world. Awesome!
Ideas of where you may volunteer: Charities, hospitals, children care centers (e.g. EasterSeals), church or other religious organizations, charity event, or other sweat equity. You could even go over to your nearest gas station and pump gas for a couple of hours, with of course approval by the proprietor of the establishment. Not all 10 hours have to be donated in one day. Lets just make the cut off 6 months from the end of the series, alright?
