Marianne Williamson helping raise $1000 for RESULTS with Utopia Fund match

If you are a fan of Marianne Williamson, I wanted to let you know she's helping RESULTS Educational Fund receive a bonus $1,000 and you can donate today to help!

If you don't know of her, Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher. Six of her ten published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. A paragraph from her book, Return to Love, has become rather famous as it begins "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure..." Oprah is certainly a big fan of her, so you may have seen her there before.

I've heard Marianne speak in person multiple times, including at the RESULTS
International Conferences and two RESULTS fundraising events I've helped with in Detroit. 
She always inspires people to look beyond our comfort zones to become an even more powerful advocates for change. Every time I've heard her speak, I hear her call out the facts that there are 17,000 children on this planet who starve every day and 1 in 4 children in America who are food insecure. I admire the way she strives to ignite the passion of American women to protect the survival of children on our planet. 

She and I also share a believe that RESULTS is an exemplary organization to help everyday people become extraordinary voices for change. RESULTS Educational Fund seeks to end hunger and poverty, in particular among children around the world. It creates long-term solutions by supporting programs that address poverty’s root causes — lack of access to medical care, education, or opportunity to move up the economic ladder.

Check out this powerful talk Marianne recently gave as part of 2013 TEDx Traverse City. At the event, she generously chose RESULTS Educational Fund as her charity of choice. As her charity, all donations made to RESULTS Educational Fund will be matched, up to $1,000 total, from the Utopia Fund. These donations must be made through the Utopia Fund's website and are tax-deductible.

Could you donate today and spread the word to help RESULTS Educational Fund and Marianne meet a goal of $1,000 in donations by July 14? It's a great chance for us to turn $1000 into $2000 for one of the greatest lobby organizations for people in need.
