Augie Byllott is a real estate entrepreneur, author, and trainer. His goal is to raise $1 billion dollars for charity over the next 20 years with his Billion Dollar Challenge.
He donated his first two wheelchairs in 2009. Since then he, his clients, and mastermind members have delivered container loads of chairs to Guatemala, Nicaragua, Belize, the Philippines, and Honduras.
In 2017, Augie became a charter member of the Container Club; a group of entrepreneurs and organizations who are willing to fund a full container load of wheelchairs each year.
Since 2005, Brad has helped his students purchase over 3.5 billion dollars in apartment complexes.
He is also passionate about charity and, along with his students, has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to Chair the Love and aims to contribute over $1 MILLION in charity.
They have supported and gone on four distribution trips with Chair the Love, bringing their students and friends with them!
We are so blessed to partner with the Florida Conference of SDAs to restore mobility worldwide!
Dr. Machado embodies servant leadership by pledging an annual container of wheelchairs and taking his leadership team on the distribution trips.
Interested in becoming a Container Club member?
If you are interested in joining the Container Club, please call us at 407-789-2020, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to have you on our team!
What is the Container Club?
The Container Club is a group of dedicated partners who have the desire and capacity to support at a higher level. Members commit to help us serve more people more quickly by raising the equivalent of one shipping container of wheelchairs. A container of 280 wheelchairs is $60,000. Container club members have the option to select a country that will receive the wheelchairs.
We’ll help every step of the way in getting your distribution organized to ensure the chairs are purchased, shipped, delivered and the recipients are vetted prior to the actual distribution trip. We’ll even arrange for in-country partners to assist with everything from lodging to transportation.
How do I go about fundraising?
First, you make a commitment in your heart, then let us help you. We can provide letters, emails, brochures, images, videos, and talking points so you have a great story to tell. Then you go tell it!
This can be done several ways. Some do it through their tribe; their circles of friends and business associates. Others do it through corporate sponsorships and partnerships. Schools, churches, clubs, and other social organizations all have a part to play that can result in raising container loads of wheelchairs.
What if I can’t raise an entire container, you ask? The Container Club isn’t about what you can’t do but what you can do! Sometimes we can provide matching funds so should you come up a little short? We can probably help. Remember, we are all in this together for the benefit of the recipients.
Our goal is to serve as many people as possible so every wheelchair and every donation counts. Using our new monthly subscriber tool can be a real game changer because as you secure monthly givers there is a cumulative effect that goes on year over year. It is also a great way for families to participate and teach their kids the joy of giving. You know your circle better than we do, so when it comes to creativity… the sky is the limit!!
How to be a Container Club Member.
Share your story and your passion for providing the gift of mobility to people for whom the gift will be truly life changing. Invite friends and associates to join you on a distribution. Host an intimate dinner or corporate event to raise awareness and funds.
It’s totally up to you.
