Coaching for a Cause


Some say it’s better to give than to receive while others say it’s better to receive than to give.  But as coaches, we know that it’s best to give AND receive.  

And when both happen together, magical things happen. Such is the case.  I want to encourage you to give so that you can receive it. Let me clarify.  During certain times of the month, you can make a donation to any charity. Just send me a copy of the receipt and I will give you one minute of coaching for every 2 dollars you donate. That’s right.  

You read correctly.  I am offering you complimentary coaching–as a “thank you” and appreciation for helping others. I did this a few years back to great success.  But I think we can do better this year. Follow this link to read past results.

OPTION A) Donate to the charity of your choice and receive complementary coaching from me, OR

OPTION B) Take this on yourself–offer your own coaching for a cause (you can completely copy this and use it for your own) OR



(You don’t have to give to any of these specifically, these are just suggestions.
Give to what matters to you.)

Together we can raise $20,220 before the end of 2022 for charities around the globe. How awesome will that be?

There are a couple of important rules and details to follow.

A) It must be a new donation dated that was made between today and February 28.  That means earlier donations were clearly not made in partnership with this offer and, although appreciated, will not count.

B) This offer expires at midnight at the end of the month that is featured.  Once we hit the next month, no more donations will be accepted.  (This is to encourage you to get into action.  You know, like a coach would, right?)

C) Once I receive the receipt I will send you a link to schedule your call.  Although the scheduler may block off a larger time, I will be keeping track of our time and we will end at the appropriate time.  You will only get coaching for the amount of time equal to the amount of dollars you have donated. $60 = 30 minutes of coaching$100 = 50 minutes.

D) if you have donated more than $100 you can break up your time into multiple sessions.  (No sense in having a giant long session.)

E) The MINIMUM amount accepted is $30 for 15 minutes of coaching.

F) The MAXIMUM amount accepted is… $400  (Well, actually, you could donate more–that’s your option–but I can only offer a total of 4- 50-minute sessions. *(Extra bonus below)

G) All charity coaching must be completed during the appropriately themed month.  

H) It doesn’t have to be only one charity.  You can do multiple donations to several organizations and then add them all together.  (So you could do something like a $5 donation to twelve different groups, which would then total a complimentary 30-minute session.)

I) You can contribute to any organization that you want and support any cause you believe in, or you can always choose one of these below.

J) Do not send me the money to make the donation for you.  I want you to get the tax benefit.  And I want no question as to where the money has gone.   This is truly my gift to you as you give to others.  Think of it like “paying it forward… but in reverse… or something like that.”Besides this is truly my gift to you as you give to others.  I don’t want to get anything out of it except for the honor and pleasure of working with you for a little bit.  Think of it like paying it forward… but in reverse… or upside down… or something like that.

K) Ok?  Then go to it so you can help people and I can then have the honor of thanking you on their behalf with some coaching.

L) Once you have completed your donations, simply send me an email to ben@bedo.org letting me know the charities and amount(s) and I’ll send you back a link to begin scheduling your calls.

M) *EXTRA BONUS If you donate more than the $400 and you want to register for my advanced coach training, The Fast Pass to MasterFull Coaching, I’ll deduct $2 for every $1, either the amount donated or the surplus after the coaching sessions.
(In other words, if you donate $800, you can  either get the four coaching sessions ($400) PLUS $200 off the class ($400/2-$200), or you can deduct a whole $400 ($800/2=$400) from the class.)

N) Contact me at ben@bedo.org if you have any questions. I’m happy to clarify so I can help you help others.

O) You can also participate by BEing a Coaching for a Cause Coach and raising your own money through the gift of your coaching.

Here are some suggestions and structures to follow.

Together let’s raise $20,220 dollars before 2022 ends!
