One Break Challenge
We "Challenge" you to give someone in need "One Break".
OneBreak.org has created a project on Indiegogo to ask everyone who can or will, to share in our mission to give to someone in need. Whether this is a friend, family member, associate or complete stranger, a challenge to give them that "One Break".
Many times it's quite easy to see someone who is struggling, having a hard time who just can't seem to get things going in their life. Perhaps they just need a break to catch their breath, to be able to breathe again that would allow them a needed opportunity.
The campaign's goal is to raise funds, not specifically for our charity but for a physical item to be used in the "passion of giving". The hope is to create an intentional motive, incentive, and or a feel good moment for oneself.
The actual project is an extension of our mission, however it's a "Challenge" given to supporters and a real, tangible reason to contribute.
The main reward focuses on a "two part" key chain or charm bearing the name "One Break". All contributions are tax deductible.
How it works is; for a specific contribution, a contributor will receive the key chain or charm whereas they will then share one half of it to another person, in which they, the contributor will also provide that needed "one break" to. The "one break" they give would be of their choosing, such as: providing a decent supper; paying for a spa treatment; sponsoring a needed weekend get-away; taking care of someone's unexpected car repair; paying someone's rent or childcare for a month... big or small, the possibilities are endless. You can read more details on Indiegogo.
A few storys of lives being impacted
Jada spent all her young years into adult hood taking care of her mother. Never traveling and not much fun. A five day vacation was her One Break.
Michael's mom dealt with the struggles of having a son, now an adult with disabilities. There are services, however finding and connecting with them can be a challenge. Someone working with Michael's mom, one-on-one connecting the necessary services was the One Break needed.
As a struggling actress with a child, Linda could not always extend afford childcare. Six months of paid childcare was the break Linda needed.
As a young man, Jake didn't always follow the rules which lead to having a record that many times made him, unemployable. A permanent and stable job was the One Break Jake needed.
