What is the Two Rule Pledge?
IT STARTS WITH A COMMITMENT
By taking the pledge you're making a decision that giving back to those in need an important part of your life. You're immediately part of a community that's committed to making a difference.
WE'LL HELP YOU MAKE AN IMPACT
Because it's challenging deciding where to donate your resources and how to get involved, you'll receive a comprehensive guide to help you get started. You'll then select 1-2 organizations to focus your resources in the coming year.
KEEP UP THE MOMENTUM
Taking a pledge is easy. Changing your behavior and staying focused on the needs of others is hard. Each month, we'll send you some inspirational reminders that will keep you going.
PART OF A COMMUNITY
Once you've taken the pledge, you'll be introduced to a community of givers and invited to participate in regular live and online events.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get started?
Just click "Submit" above or "Take the Pledge" below. That's it. You'll receive a follow up email with further information about how we'll work with you on the journey.
How long does this process last?
This challenge is designed to last a minimum of 1 year. We believe that after 1 full year of making a meaningful commitment to helping those less fortunate, you'll notice a big difference in your life.
How does this process "work"?
Our goal is to inspire you to change your perspective by committing a significant portion of your resources (time and money) to help those in need.
Once you take the pledge, we'll be there right beside you with an encouraging weekly message to keep you focused and maintain the momentum.
What types of "giving" should I be tracking this year?
We'd like to challenge you to keep it simple. Just track the amount of time and money you commit to helping charitable organizations.
Where should I give my resources?
It's up to you. Everyone has different passions and interests. We'll send you some guidelines to help you determine the best organization for you, but, in the end it's your choice.
How do I report my involvement to the Two Rule Foundation?
You don't. The Pledge works on the honor system. Our goal is simply to inspire you to change your perspective.
However, we know that a little accountability can help you on this journey. As a result, we recommend you consider the following:
- Share your story on the closed Facebook group.
- Share the "I took the Pledge" button on your social channels (this will come in your first email).
- Place the "I took the Pledge" button in your email signature.
- Utilize a simple sheet to track your activity. (You'll receive a sample in your first email).
- Take part in the "anonymous" surveys that we'll send out periodically.
What do you do with my personal information?
Nothing. We never share this information, nor make it public in any way.
What if I fall behind on my giving?
Don't worry about it - perfection is the enemy in this journey.
Learn from the past and recommit to the process every time you feel "guilty" that you haven't been doing enough.
Keep in mind, you're making a significant change in your behavior - this is supposed to be challenging. If it was easy, there would be very little long term benefit.
