By now, you guys know I’m all about being positive. Or at least striving to be positive. So, with that in mind, we here at You’re Doing It Right! have decided to step up our game a little. And here’s one way we are going to do it.
You’re Doing It Right! has opened a store on CafePress. I’m no graphic designer, but it’s a start. If you can’t tell what the logo looks like, it’s the same “thumbs up” that is to the left of this post. And before you say, “Man, it’s only been 3 days and he’s already trying to cash in on this!” Not to worry. This has never, EVER been about making money and, hopefully, never will be. That’s why 100% of the proceeds of the merchandise sold through that store will go to charity. That’s right. 100%. I don’t want to make a dime off of anything sold from it. Since we’re just getting started, I’ve decided to combine the proceeds of March and April to go to one charity. The first charity will be Air1 Radio. Tomorrow marks the beginning of their Spring Pledge Drive. Since, it was with their help that we got the ball rolling on this, I would really like for us to step up and thank them by supporting their cause. They are entirely listener supported. You can help by doing 1 of 2 (or both) things:
It’s that easy. (Personally, I’d rather you just give to their cause directly. Since your money would go a lot further that way. But if you want a wicked awesome shirt or mug or whatever, then by all means, stop by the store.)
Each month we will vote on which charity will receive that month’s proceeds. So, it’s important for you to check back occasionally. (Daily would be awesome!) Also, you’ll notice there are no ads on this site. I’m going to do my absolute best to keep it that way. Oh yeah, if anyone out there knows of a cheaper site or company that can print the merchandise, let me know. If we can produce the items at a lower cost, we can give more money to charity. WIN – WIN!
Last, but certainly not least, Mrs. You’re Doing It Right called me today while she was out and about with Baby YDIR (Little Miss YDIR was at school) and wanted to suggest a verse for this site.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. (emphasis mine)
– Romans 12: 9-16
There’s nothing I can add to that. Oh, have mentioned before that my wife deserves a big #YDIR? I have? Well, she needs another.
