Rock Chick Nation

RCNFinalBlackTo support those who supported me in living my dream, I’ve created the Rock Chick Nation, a community of sisters looking after sisters, doing good deeds, having fun and living, breathing and rocking the Rock Chick lifestyle.

The Mission is to live your best life, be true to your true self, recognize your beauty, and last but definitely not least, take your sister’s back whether they’re at your side as friends and family or if they’re thousands of miles away and you don’t even know who they are.

Rock Chick Rewards — What it’s about…

What does a sister do when she’s living her dream with thousands of sisters at her back making it real?

She gives back.

Three to four times a year, on my Facebook page, Twitter account and anywhere else I can shout it out, I’ll send a callout to my Rock Chicks to nominate their favorite woman’s charity to receive a Rock Chick Reward. There will be a time limit on the callout and once that’s done, the charities nominated will be put in a hat and one will be selected randomly.

Once the charity is selected, we’ll launch some awesome fundraising campaign–selling t-shirts or auctioning off swag–to raise scads of money.

I’ll do my best to keep this exciting and all monies raised will be donated to the winning charity with a matched gift from moi (up to $500 USD just in case you sistahs go crazy).

Now, I’m a Rock Chick so I’m not hip on a lot of rules but there must be some and here they are:

1) Anyone can nominate any woman’s charity from any country. However, the charity nominated has to be a recognized charity in that country, for instance, in the US, it has to have 501(c)3 status or in the UK it has to be registered with The Charities Commission and have a charity number. They also have to be charities in good standing. And last, the charity must provide services to women. These can include domestic violence shelters, rape crisis centers, ovarian or breast cancer organizations, etc. Only women’s charities will be put in the hat (unless I get a wild hair and decide something different, I can get wild hairs, as proven by the huge amount we raised for BACA [see above]). After the campaign is done, we’ll deal with payments of money.

2) Anyone from any country can participate. And luckily, the t-shirt company we use ships overseas so all can participate in that too!

3) All expenses for this program  will be paid for by moi so the entirety of the winning bid and the matching donation will be made to charity without expenses deducted.

4) Nominations for charities will only be accepted on the postings on my Facebook page. Please don’t email or tweet nominations, too hard to keep track of those!

Now all charities need our support and I want to give back to you by providing that support to a cause that’s close to your heart. That said, although all charity selections will be completely random, I’ll point out that smaller, lesser-known and local charities often struggle mightily for funds. So when you’re thinking about what you want the Rock Chick Nation to support, give a thought to local or little known charities who could really do with the dosh. And remember, the mission is sisters looking out for sisters so only women’s charities will be accepted as nominees (again, unless I get a wild hair).

And last, this is the best way I could think of to thank you for making my dreams come true. You did me a world of good and it’s important to me to give back.

Now, let’s link arms, sisters, and do some good together!
