I wanted to update you all on the results of YouTube vloggers, Benji and Judy Travis’s, Dancember charity event.  I am so jazzed about this charity.  I am even more jazzed that this is a great example of how average folks like ourselves can come together and affect change in this world of ours.

For the year, 2014, the Dancember goal was to raise $100,000 (US dollars) to be donated to Rescue Freedom.  A majority of the cash donations to Rescue Freedom came from folks all over the planet who enjoy watching Benji and Judy’s  family vlogs which are posted daily on YouTube.

An anonymous benefactor offered to match the Dancember $100,000 goal if it was met.

During a 24-hour YouTube Dancember event, viewers worldwide stopped by to watch the fun and donate to the cause. The Dancember event gathered well over enough  cash donations from viewers to meet that $100,000 goal.

Earlier this year, Benji presented a check  to Rescue Freedom for $100,000 from It’s Judy’s Life viewers as well as a matching check from the anonymous contributor for that same figure.  $2oo,000 in total.

 

The donated monies in excess of the $100,000 are being presented to other local charities in the Seattle Washington, USA area.
