Haven’t you ever thought what would it be like to be a billionaire? Well podnuh’, stop thinking because today, starting right now you can join the Billionaires Club.
It’s easy and let me show you how. Step up to the nearest mirror; put a smile on your face; raise your right arm and repeat after me: “ I, (your name) am an American citizen and I solemnly swear to voluntarily add two cents to my total retail purchases to BACK-OUR-VETS.”
Congratulations! You are now a proud member of the Billionaires Club and by so doing what you have pledged and promised your repetitive 2 cent donations, combined with your fellow members across America, will total more than $1B annually with every penny going to the non-profit charity organizations that daily serve those military men and women that have courageously served this nation we all cherish and love.
Figures don’t lie. Here is how the money grows 2 cents at a time. It all adds up, so please follow this simple COMMON CENTS arithmetic.
The average cashier in a supermarket will do over 1,000 transactions in a day. Assume each shopper voluntarily added 2 cents on top of their total bill that is $20 daily. Over 350 days in the year this $20 has grown into $7,000. With 150,000 cashiers throughout the U.S.A. participating YOU just helped raise $1,050,000,000.
Good for you and every Billionaires Club member. It’s better to give than receive especially when you know that your pennies are going to reduce and solve the problems of many of the needy troops, veterans and their families that are struggling.
I promise you won’t miss those pennies no matter how often you give at the grocery store, the gas pump, in the department store, grabbing some fast food or sitting at a bar.
Sounds too easy? Or too difficult?
There are over 30,000 supermarkets and thousands more grocery stores that represent of over one-third of our Gross National Products. If they each average five cashiers per store we reach our goal of 150,000 cashier collection points.
Smoke dream, Earl? Not really. Not when I think of the thousands upon thousands of retail operations that the numbers will amaze you. I can almost bet that you didn’t know that Subway operates 40,8555 restaurants in 105 countries, Auto Zone has over 5,000 USA locations, CVS operates 7,600 pharmacies, Staples has 2,000 locations and Starbucks alone has 11,000 stores. This limited number of chains probably represent over 50,000 cashiers who if they were participating by collecting the 2 cent contributions they would add another $350,000,000 – $500,000,000 to BACK-OUR-VETS. That’s no small change to sneeze at. Rather we can all say “God Bless.”
Imagine, for example that McDonald’s restaurants has over 34,000 stores worldwide and serves 70 million customers daily. According to their annual report the U.S.A. represents approximately 32% of revenue. Using that figure as a base let’s assume that there are 11,000 McDonald’s in the U.S.A. serving 22,400,000 customers DAILY. If every day each customer added their 2 cents to the meal we would raise $448,000 and over one year this one chain would help raise $156,800,000 to BACK-OUR-VETS. Unbelievable, but certainly possible!
It doesn’t sound easy to you. I get that, but we all started crawling before we learned to walk. Once enough of you join the Billionaires Club and make your loud and clear voices be heard where you shop and buy, then the Gibraltar size retailers will crumble and we will no longer be stumbling on our way to success. In this land of the free we have the right to choose and shop where we know by putting in our two cents it is making sense for the common good of every man and woman who wore a military uniform. Be a hero in your own community and let your voices be heard and America will smile all the way to the bank of good will and good deeds.
I believe your taxes may go down because this money will help relieve the burden of our funding the over-whelmed Veteran Administration as the non-profits which these funds are supporting will be able to lift many of those responsibilities.
