The winner of the 6 word philanthropy memoir contest is Jason from the "A Small Change-Fundraising Blog." Jason actually had two entries but my favorite was "It is a work in progress." For his creative writing, Jason wins a four pack of Do Good Guides, which includes Nonprofit and Philanthropy Fellowships, Becoming a Presentation Powerhouse, Branding Yourself for Personal and Professional Success, and Leading Without Authority. Congratulations Jason!
I read a review about an interesting book called Not Quite What I was Planning, which is filled with six word memoirs from famous and not so famous people. I love the idea of distilling your life story into six words and wondered if I could pack in my passion for the nonprofit sector and my love for staff development into six little words? I also wondered what sort of amazing 6 word manifestos you would come up with, so I am hosting a contest. From now until August 7th you can post your own 6 word memoir in the comments section of this post. There will be some sort of amazing prize for the winner, as determined by me. I could be more descriptive but what is better than a surprise prize?
My career in 6 words is:
Helping do gooders do good, better.
