Do you feel unsatisfied? Lacking a sense of achievement? Tires slashed? Friends calling you a hater? Is your license plate KRMUGN? Regardless, get your connect on with the G-Team and make everything a bit better and brighter before heading home for the weekend.
Sticking to our social activist roots and extending our philanthropic reach, the G-Team is excited to give honorable mention to our recent campaign for the Chicago Dance Institute (CDI) . After successfully raising $1,300 (which was more than double our goal) for the [CDI](http://www.chicagodanceinstitute.org/index.html) we the Groupon nation should pause for a moment and let the intrinsic satisfaction wash over us.
Not only did this campaign succeed at the tipping point level, that one gifted student from an under-served Chicago community will get a yearlong dance instruction scholarship, but we are exhilarated to report that this set off an incredible and unintended chain of events. Specifically, the CDI wrote to us that we not only reinvigorated their inactive supporters, but also connected prospective and additional donors with their organization. Moreover, this then allowed the CDI to connect their new donors with [another in-need local affiliate](http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2010-03-15/news/ct-met-maywood-fire-0315-20100315_1_dance-studio-2nd-home-safe-haven).
G-Team campaigns like this strive to emotionally connect our intelligent and generous subscriber base in a meaningful way with [superb non-profit organizations](http://www.chicagodanceinstitute.org/video.html?v=QJ_cef7z_s4). By positively impacting our communities we simply want to change the world for the better. And as lofty as that sounds this story is just one example of the positive potential we Grouponers have by setting simple and achievable goals.
Intentional or not, giving begets giving. So go hug your insides and don’t be afraid to share with the person next to you.
