OAKLAND, CA - AfroDaddy.com – The Black Man Survival Guide announces the new 2011 program “The $100 Million Afro Daddy Challenge”, designed to help African Americans save $100 million through financial strategies, tips and cost saving measures found at the AfroDaddy.com website. The premise of the Afro Daddy Challenge is simple: to reach 1 million African Americans; and save each of them a minimum of $100 through content they find on the website. The result of reaching these goals will be the return of $100 million back into the pockets of black men and women that otherwise would have been wasted and/or removed from the black community.
“There are many issues related to financial matters that many people in the black community have not traditionally been exposed to” says Darrell Garrett, Senior Editor at AfroDaddy.com. “Whether due to lack of financially successful peers and family members or the lack of generational wealth, many cost saving and money management strategies are not passed down or shared within the black community.” AfroDaddy.com is committed to unlocking some of those secrets and sharing them within the community.
To make the $100 Million Afro Daddy Challenge successful, AfroDaddy.com is making a strong request to the community for assistance and support. AfroDaddy.com currently has almost two hundred articles related to various Money Survival Guide topics, Inspirational People, Education and Jobs. There are also hundreds of answers to general life questions that are geared to increase awareness, save money or help people avoid losing cash through mismanagement and poor financial decisions. In order for the Challenge to be successful many more cost savings articles, Q&A and Did You Know topics need to be added. Many will come from AfroDaddy.com writers, but the majority will need to come from the community. Individuals, organizations, black business owners, and all people of good will need to contribute their knowledge and expertise via articles, site comments and website Q & A so that the necessary information is on the site when visitors come to find it.
Everyone has expertise in something and everyone has something to contribute. The legacy of the 2011 program will be the creation of the largest and the best survival knowledge base for black men and the black community where people can come to get answers so they can do for self. “Survival is not about a hand out it is about a hand up” says Garrett.
AfroDaddy.com, one of the leading websites for black men, is a community project website focused on providing young black men, black fathers and their families the answers to questions about how to survive and prosper in America. The cornerstone of the website is The Black Man Survival Guide, which contains Survival Articles, Did You Knows and Q & A related to Food, Shelter, Clothing, Health, Love and Money. In addition to the Survival Guide, the website also features articles on inspirational people and careers, as well as a special section that deals with issues related to black fatherhood and parenting.
