Hey, it’s our digital magazine’s First Birthday and we wanted to find a meaningful way to celebrate: and what better way than to celebrate YOU. YOU, the misfits, the crazy ones, the outliers, the futurists, the imaginators, the geeks, freaks and nerds for being your awesomely perfect, kind selves and supporting the notion that “What Makes You Different, Makes You Cool.”
For, without you, there would be no us.
Through your support of DisC, you have shown that you understand the power of critical thought, non-judgment, empathy and kindness.
That you join us in our wish to eradicate prejudice by increasing compassion for others honours us – we thank you for your alignment.
HOW YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT HELPS OTHERS
As you may know, we are a social enterprise, or “enterprise for good”, whereby all of our proceeds go to our Endowment of Cool – a fund which is dispersed to aligned charitable causes such as Autism education, Writer’s Trust, Music education and anti-bullying campaigns.
So every time you visit our site, read our articles, comment, share and/or engage with us on social media [Facebook,Twitter], our sponsors and advertisers reward us. And all of the proceeds go to our Endowment. SO, VISIT US OFTEN! TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS! SPREAD THE COOL!
You can also purchase super-cool Different Is Cool Merchandise in our EMPORIUM OF COOL – again, all of the proceeds go to the Endowment.
SO, BACK TO OUR BIRTHDAY…
In our quest to find a meaningful way to celebrate our beeday and thank you for your support, we asked our awesome Founding Patrons of Cool, Margaret Atwood, Nikki Sixx and Daniel Lanois for their thoughts on giving and receiving and here’s where we landed: how about we celebrate with a Kindness is Cool Giveaway Event?
KINDNESS IS COOL: BE KIND & WIN!
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
- Perform random acts of kindness towards others – ie. buying a coffee for the first responder in line behind you at the coffee shop; engaging in conversation with a street person; giving up your seat on the bus for someone who looks like they could use it; hugging someone who’s having a hard day; donating time/dollars to a worthy cause, etc
- Post images of your ideas/acts on our Facebook page and Twitter Feed and you’re automatically entered to win! We would LOVE to see you post pictures of you performing your cool deed, so please do! [Note. If your deed involves someone else, please always get their permission to take their photo.]
- Watch your Inbox to see if you’ve won!
We’ll be giving out autographed, exclusive swag ALL SUMMER, so post your good deeds as many times as you like! Remember, Kindness Is Contagious, So Pass It On!
JUST A FEW OF THE COOL, AUTOGRAPHED ITEMS WE ARE GIVING AWAY!
