As of now, over $35,000 has been donated. For his “give-back birthday,” Ferriss is asking that contributors donate $35 to help support his 35th birthday. He’ll match every dollar, up to $50,000, donated by midnight July 27.
“Tim’s a big believer in education,” Vittana founder and CEO Kushal Chakrabarti says. “He decided to join Vittana’s board of advisors this month and use his 35th birthday to fight youth poverty.”
Here’s a video made to help promote the Vittana/Ferriss fund-raiser. And stay tuned for more news from Vittana next week, which is currently working on a new effort that Chakrabarti says is part of the organization’s next stage.
