I recently met my first Philanthropeneur!
Randy Jeffers is truly a remarkable man in a world that is growing surprisingly short of remarkable men!
A man that through success and failure, and believe me he’s had both, has kept his focus on his lifelong dream to head the world’s largest company that helps underprivileged and orphaned children around the Globe!
I asked Randy just what his company did.
“We’re in Manufacturing”, he smiled.
Oh I exclaimed – exactly what do you manufacture?
“Smiles” he replied! Smiles on the faces of all my affiliates and especially on the faces of those we serve, the underprivileged children around the world.
His company now headquartered in Las Vegas, NV. is called appropriately “Bids That Give”.
A few months ago Randy was introduced to a business that is sweeping the world ‘on line’ – the business of Penny Auctions.
“The moment I saw the potential that the world wide opportunities provided by the internet, through the vehicle of the penny auction, I knew that I had found the ‘vehicle’ I needed to drive me to the fulfillment of my dream.”
In the current climate of economic depression, charities around the world are struggling to survive.
Randy Jeffers realized that if he could find a way to reward people for generating those much needed funds in a fair and equitable way that not only provided the orphanages he supports with food, clothing and schooling, but also provided a reasonable return to those involved in generating the funds and maintaining these much needed facilities, he could well be on his way to achieving his goal.
The result is “Bids That Give- every bid helps a kid”
Not content with just a Penny Auction site (by the way I won a Juicer for 79 cents, an Amazon $25.00 gift card for 39 cents and a presentation Mouse/pointer for $6.00) Randy has now surrounded himself with a number of ‘Guru’s’ as he describes them, to provide a series of on line business’s in the field of Entertainment, Health Products, Travel, Sports Memorabilia and a whole host of income generating businesses ‘in a box’.
His affiliate program “Bid Ambassadors” is growing at an astounding rate as philanthropeneurs around the world seize the opportunity to better their own lives in the process of helping those whose circumstances prevent them from helping themselves.
I have had the opportunity to work with children’s charities and facilities around the world over my 79 years. These have been the most rewarding moments of my life. Thanks to an invitation from Randy himself I may soon have the opportunity to experience such precious moments once again. (BidAmbassaroreClub)
