Charity Challenges grew out of a twitter conversation between some friends in October, 2013. In January, 2014 the first Pull-Up Challenge patches were ordered and the original Pull-Up Challenge was held by All Day Ruckoff benefitting the Green Beret Foundation.
A year and a half later (September, 2015) Mettle Forger approached All Day Ruckoff about expanding the Pull-Up Challenge event with the goal to get even more people involved. Although no one knew it at the time the Pull-Up Challenge that ran from 10/1/2015 to 12/31/2015 was the first official Charity Challenges event. It was hosted on a terrible website with minimum functionality but it worked and, more importantly, showed everyone what was possible.
After the success of the Pull-Up Challenge the Charity Challenges website was created and the company became what you see here today. The goal of Charity Challenges is to raise money for charity. We do this by putting on some of the best virtual events you will ever find. If you are curious about this project or wish to get in touch please fill out the contact us form and we will get back to you.
Most virtual event companies donate “a percentage” of proceeds from their events to charity. The frustrating part there is that most of them do not tell you what that percentage is and where it goes. We are as transparent about this as humanly possible.
Exactly 100% of the proceeds from our live events, the cornerstone of Charity Challenges, are donated to charity. Other products and perpetual events have variable donation percentages shown below. So date we have donated $70,243 to charity which is something we are very proud of.
|Event/Item Type||% to Charity||% to Operating Costs*|
*Operating Costs: Operating costs are costs beyond putting on the associated event. Examples of thee costs include domain name fees, website hosting, and other technology services.
It costs of thousands of dollars each year to operate the website, fulfill packages, and give you the experience that you deserve. The goal with having a portion of some event proceeds go towards general operating costs is to make Charity Challenges at a minimum a net-even company.
Thank you so much for your support!
