Last week you replied to my post where I mentioned that my daughter didn't want to kill the goose that lays the golden egg.

After watching your video with Scott Harrison, I was compelled to want to get involved, but I don't want people to kill their goose; just send an egg to Scott Harrison's charity: water campaign.

Can you help me spread this message:

Thanks

Wow, very cool Eddie. (I'm reading that correctly, right?)

I think we can help spread that word for you. Lemme see what I can do.

Foolish best,

Jason

OK, I just Tweeted it out on my feed to about 1,100 folks and luckily for us the powers that be saw it fit to then reTweet that on the main Fool Twitter feed which has a couple more followers...about 347,000.

An awesome cause; donate to a Fool's @charitywater campaign right here and read why "In Eddie's words..." http://mycharitywater.org/p/campaign?campaign_id=30754 … #investbetter

I bet we may even see Charity: Water do something too.

Foolish best,

Jason

Eddie, this is awesome and amazing (everyone should watch the video and the link). I feel privileged just to be part of the Fool community with people like you. I can't make a contribution immediately, though I have bookmarked the page and will do so.

Thanks!!
I sure hope that out of 347,000, 4 Fools (or 200 Fools @ $20) will step up to help meet the goal.

For me, the timing of your interview with Scott Harrison - on the same week as the launch of Invest Better Day - was perfect. Being able to build a life changing water well from just a small percentage of my Foolish portfolio gains is a great way to get a message to new investors that long term investing can help change their own life, and someone else's.

Maybe on the 10th anniversary of Invest Better Day there will be many more Fools who reflect on a decade of market beating gains and decide to support a cause they believe in.

Fool on

PS: I'll throw in a chance to win a round trip to Maui for 2 . I will enter all donors names (into my jesters cap) who make a donation before midnight Sept 25, 1012 to

http://mycharitywater.org/p/campaign/?campaign_id=30754

Then from the jester's cap I will draw one (1) name to enter in the drawing for the Maui trip (http://www.pacificwhale.org/content/whale-regatta ).
