Vote for Foolishness!

Got this message from DonorsChoose.org, that I wanted to share with you.


Vote for Foolishness!

Posted: 31 Oct 2008 09:25 AM CDT


Lots of words go through my mind these days as I ponder the trampoline-like bounce (or maybe more like a squash ball bounce – very little "up" momentum) of the stock market. Foolishness could be one.

Some people may also think in the current climate, charitable contributions are the last thing a company should be focusing in on. It's a time to retrench, regroup, SAVE!

And saving is just the kind of foolishness the folks at Motley Fool are all about. Every day, the folks at Motley Fool work to educate, amuse and enrich the individual investor on their path to wealth building. But their saving isn't just about individual investors. In their 2008 Foolanthropy initiative, Motley Fool picked four nonprofits each of which are focused on financial literacy in the K-12 education space – their idea being, smarter young investors will lead to a healthier long-term economy. That sounds anything but foolish to me!

And foolish or not, they've selected DonorsChoose.org as being one of the lucky participants.

How does it work? All you have to do is click here, and scroll down slowly until you see the bright green box pictured right here:

Motley Fool

Then click on DonorsChoose.org and hit vote. You may be asked to enter your email, but that's it!

What happens if we win? Motley Fool will contribute $10,000 to be matched by another $10,000 to financial literacy projects in the Washington DC region.

Coming from a bunch of "Fools," we think it's a foolproof strategy to get sensible needs met in DC! Vote today!
