A Meaningful Birthday Gift

My 37th birthday is this Tuesday, October 23, 2018. Instead of buying me a cheap plastic thing from a megacorporation, would you be willing to get me a meaningful gift?

The Minimalists’ hometown, Dayton, Ohio, has one of the largest food deserts in the United States, and Dayton is America’s second “hungriest” city, which means thousands of families don’t have access to what you and I take for granted every day: healthy food.

Together, we can fix this problem.

The Minimalists are partnering with Gem City Market to help build a grocery co-op in Dayton’s westside. Joshua & I are donating $25,000 of our own personal money, and we need your help to raise the remaining funds to get us to $100,000.

Want to help? Please visit the donation page. I’d be grateful if you’d donate $37 for my birthday. If you have a little extra cash to spare, $90 will provide a needy family with a lifetime membership to the food co-op. Or, if you have only $2, $5, or $20, everything counts!

Thank you in advance for your gift. It’s better than any necktie I’ve ever received!
