Everyone deserves a chance.

A chance at health and happiness, love and community. A chance at deeply meaningful work that you can be proud of. A chance to start over, at any age or circumstance, and pursue your curiosity and passion wherever they may take you.

These are some of the guiding principles in my business and I’ve worked hard to extend those chances to as many people as possible. But it’s not just about chances, is it?

It’s about having the capacity—the mindset, confidence, and resilience—to recognize and capitalize on life’s opportunities. To avoid the feelings of helplessness when you suffer life’s setbacks. To believe in your ability to navigate the unknown or uncertain.

These things aren’t easy for any of us, but few factors are as important as the environment you experienced during your formative years. 

That’s why I’ve decided to team up with my friend Joshua Becker in support of The Hope Effect, which aims to bring a better life to orphans around the world.

8 million children live in orphanages. But there is growing research that the traditional, institutional care that most orphans receive may do long-term harm. When children do not receive adequate personal interaction within a loving environment, development is stunted and learning abilities are delayed or lost. Many kids age out only to face a future of crime, prostitution, or trafficking.

The Hope Effect aims to change that by rethinking the orphanage design. They build family-style homes for two caretakers and eight children in a campus-like setting that provides the opportunity for each child to flourish and thrive. Access to health, dental, and social care is provided while each child is prepared for the future through education, responsibility, support and the structure that parents were designed to provide.

I've set a goal to raise $3000 to extend the chance at a better life to orphans in Honduras. 

But as a fellow big-hearted citizen of the world, I know there are many, many worthwhile causes asking for your support, so I wanted to find a way to make this a bigger win-win for everyone involved. I'm giving away some truly fantastic prizes for everyone who donates just $20 or more. To find out what those prizes are and how to claim yours, visit my blog post on the campaign here.

Help me support The Hope Effect by making a donation. The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause!

100% of the money donated will be used for orphan care. And The Hope Effect has committed to communicating with each of us directly how and where the money is being spent and the exact community we helped.

If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!

Thanks so much for your generosity!
