Time to Give

What do Kristen Chenoweth, Jane Krakowski and Cyndi Lauper have in common? "Time to Give." Now, I don't mean time in the sense as if they have spare time to volunteer. I am referring to this month's Audemars Piguet signature fundraiser, "Celebrity Watch Auction."

Piguet, the worlds oldest Haute Horlogerie watchmaker is celebrating its 57th year since the opening of its boutique and partnership with the Tony Awards all in a NYC style way. They have invited 27 celebrities to autograph a Audemars Piguet watch which will be auctioned for charity. The proceeds benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

I personally love the Cynthia Nixon watch!

The auction ends May 24th. There is still time to get your favorite celebrity autographed Audemars Piguet and help a cause at the same time. Click the link below to see all the star studded watches.

Small Businesses Give Big book and more

I know that Spring is on your mind right now and here is why it's on mine...

It' been one full year that my book, Small Businesses Give Big, has been out. And I am happy to say that twenty-percent of each book sale has gone to support a cause near and dear to my heart. More on that in a second.

To celebrate my book's one-year anniversary, I am having a special sale and taking nearly 50% of the book's regular price. The sale begins today and ends Friday, May 7, 2010. This is my gift to you, to thank you for being a loyal givingadvice blog reader.

In this book you will learn why charitable giving is a powerful business strategy to build your business, create connections with clients and customers, and champion a cause all at the same time. You will read:

* the creative and unique giving back stories of other small business owners and solo- entrepreneurs
* the value and impact giving has had for their business, them and their
* my 5 success strategies to build your business giving program
* ways to give besides just writing a check, and more...

Twenty-percent of each book goes to support the Little Red Wagon Foundation (LRWF). The LRWF is a nonprofit started by a 12 year old boy, Zach Bonner. With full support of his mother, Zach is currently walking from Tampa, FL to Los Angeles, CA to raise awareness about homeless youth under the age of 18. YES! It is hard to believe there is about 1.3 million kids without a home. Zach is walking across Texas as I write. You can follow him on Twitter @Zach_Bonner.

If you haven't picked up your copy, this is the week to do it, because as of Saturday, May 8, 2010 it will only be available on Amazon.
