Tim Ferriss and PR Bandwagons
I’ve been a long subscriber to Tim Ferriss’s blog, and I actually own a copy of his book –
I often pick it up and read it then get inspired and do something totally off-the-wall. Last time I picked it up, I ended up dressing up as a Stormtrooper for children’s charities. And we all know how that ended!
Now, he’s trying to raise a wad of cash for charities by means of a Twitter experiment. He wants everybody to start following him on Twitter, and to do so he’s going to bribe every single follower. But here’s the “Change the World” catch – he’s going to donate US$3 to each users chosen charity.
1) For every new Twitter follower in the next two weeks, I will donate $1 to DonorsChoose.org, and an anonymous supporter will match $2, for a total of $3 to U.S. public school classrooms per follower.
IF you’re a twitterer, then sign up – follow Tim’s experiment at his twitter thing. I’m all for some blatant blog bribery, especially when the money goes to charity.
