As you know I’m undertaking a 30 day challenge to raise £400,000 for charity by selling 200,000 copies of my e-book, LinkedIn Made Easy. As a result of the challenge I’ve been in touch with all sorts of people for all sorts of reasons but I today I received an email from someone special. His name is John Jocham and as a result of buying my e-Book he suddenly had lots of ideas about how he could promote his own challenge, which is to raise funds for Diabetes research. He’s contacted me on LinkedIn to see if I could help as well, hence this blog post; oh, and I gave him some other ideas for things he could do as well.
The reason for his campaign is because his seven year old daughter was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and he is trying to:
- Raise funds for JDRF’s research to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes
- Raise funds towards helping diabetic children in the local community – DCODE (Diabetic Children Of Dorset East)
- Raise awareness about Diabetes generally
