I have people ask me all the time how they can get involved or support our non-profit, The One, Inc., or The Arkansas Dream Center. The truth is that there are hundreds of ways you can help out, the best way is to visit both of the websites for these organizations because they both have updated lists of current needs for anyone looking to help out. If you are familiar w/ The One and ARDreamCenter, you probably already know that both of these organizations do a lot of great work! This time of year we could really use your support financially in order to make an impact in our community.
My good friend, Neil Greathouse, sent me a note earlier this week about a cool fund-raising program the Dream Center has going w/ Q-Pon Revolution, an electronic coupon solution, that will donate a dollar to the Dream Center anytime someone uses their app at a participating location in our area. The money generated from this fund-raiser will go directly toward feeding a kid at the Dream Center.
If you are interested in helping out, just visit the Q-Pon Revolution website and download their app and use it at the following locations:
- Tropical Smoothie Maumelle
- Tropical Smoothie Rivermarket
- Shake’s Conway
- Oak St. Bistro
- Cherry Berry Conway
- Pitza 42
- JJ’s Grill
- Hair Mechanics
Not only will you save money when you take part in this promotion but you will also be helping out The Arkansas Dream Center in a big way!!!
About The Arkansas Dream Center
The Arkansas Dream Center is a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to helping Arkansans. We provide hope by meeting both tangible and spiritual needs. It is very simple. We are going out into the communities of Arkansas, we are seeking out the hurting and the hopeless; then we are doing whatever it is we can to meet those needs and to make life better. We reach out to hurting and needy children, families and adults across all races and cultures each week. The Arkansas Dream Center strives to help solve moral decay, crime, drugs, gangs, homelessness and poverty epidemics that exist throughout Arkansas. The vision of the Arkansas Dream Center is to see thousands of hurting people come to know a new life through the efforts of our staff, volunteers, and recently rehabilitated individuals whose lives have been dramatically changed. The Arkansas Dream Center works to partner with people all around Arkansas to reach the lost and help meet the community’s most basic and greatest needs.
About Q-Pon Revolution
Qpon Revolution is an advertising business based out of Little Rock. One of our core values at Qpon Revolution is Social Responsibility, and we do this through our QR gives back program. We sponsor local non-profit organizations in our community, such as christian organizations and charities. The QR gives back program rewards these local non-profits every time a Qpon is redeemed using the Qpon app. Each organization will be partnered with a local business(es) for a certain duration of time. For example, NLC could be partnered with Tropical Smoothie Maumelle, Shake’s Conway, Pitza 42, Oak St. Bistro just to name a few. For each Qpon redeemed at these places of business, NLC will receive 50 cents to $1 per Qpon Redeemed. Typically the partnership duration will be a 1 month term. After this term has ended, the organization may have an opportunity to partner with a different local business. Through the mutual success of this partnership, both business and organization benefit.
In addition to these sponsorships, Qpon Revolution faithfully gives 10% of its profits to B.I.G Love Cancer Care, an organization that serves kids with cancer and their families in Arkansas and Texas.
