Hi Adventure Philanthropists!
Last week I launched a new Donate My Dollars campaign, where y'all get to vote on where I make a donation. For this challenge, I chose one organization helping to provide jobs for Americans located in 3 cities.
A week into the voting, 25 of you have voted for your favorite city to receive the grant, with Ft. Myers, Florida, barely edging out Milwaukee, and the City of Brotherly Love lagging far behind the front runners.
There’s still plenty of time to vote and direct my charity, so check out the giving challenge today: http://www.goeringo.com/2013/07/11/donate-my-dollars-jobs-for-americans/ Remember, you raise your voice and I open my wallet!

Photo of the Week: Watering Hole at Etosha, Namibia
This serene shot was taken during a safari in Etosha National Park in Namibia. I love how the sun was setting and the giraffes at the water hole have their images reflected in the water. It was such a peaceful scene...until the lions came later.
