Screen shot 2010-07-24 at 8.21.03 PM It is hard to believe but in the not so distant future – December 1 – Robin and I will celebrate 20 years of marriage.  

Sheesh, how did THAT happen?  

For our 10th Anniversary, we went to Hawaii – for which Eldest still gives us a hard time for not taking her – but this time neither Robin or I are feeling like we want to spend on a bunch of money on a big ole party or a trip.  Both find ways to celebrate, we're just not feeling it.  Still, we also want to acknowledge that 20 years is a long time and worth celebrating with those who have traveled this adventure with is. With this in mind, we are trying to think about a creative way to celebrate our 20 years of matrimony. 

Here is one idea that we had . . . I am calling it "20 for Twenty".  Robin and I would choose 20 organizations that we support and, because we have such awesome friends, folks would choose 1 or 2 or 3 of those groups to which they would donate 20 dollars in honor of our bliss ๐Ÿ˜‰  

20 groups x 20 friends x $20 = $8,000 or $400 per group.

Groups could to their own little PR if they wanted to, maybe someone would toss out a matching gift challenge, but essentially we would be trying to reaffirm our commitment to one another by reaffirming our commitment to organizations that we hold dear.  It is not a great deal of money that we would be raising, but via my social networking juice we would also give some visibility to some group that might build some good partnership for the future. 

In any case, that is just one idea.  No sure how we would track everything and work out the technologies behind it, but I figure it can be done pretty easily.  But . . . this is where you all come in: anyone have any other ideas, additions, tweeks, etc.?

It's still early, so any ideas are welcome!
