Welcome! If you have found this blog you are either getting ready to turn 40 or know somebody who is. Thanks for stopping by!
This blog was born out of a need for turning 40 to mean something other than "we are getting older". Lynn and I threw some things back and forth and decided to do this. I've been contact by many others who are interested and I hope that it continues to grow...and that it goes beyond 2010. The start date of the Pay It 40 Campaign is 11/1/09 and it "ends" 12/31/2010...unless there is interest to continue.
The basic premise is easy. I'm an adult and I don't really need any gifts. But there are alot of charities out there that could use help. So, each "birthday girl" (or guy, I guess) picks their favorite charity.
They will be highlighted (on their birthday if possible) and then we will have links to all the charities that are being helped. Even if the person that chose that charity hasn't had their birthday yet.
We don't have a goal for how many people we get involved or for money amounts to be raised, just to GIVE. If you would like to be a part of the Pay It 40 Campaign, please leave a comment or email me.
