There are many different ways to show your support. You can make a tax deductible donation via the “Support Now” link right here which will take you directly to the LIVE UNCOMMON Fund at the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend. You will receive a receipt for your records stating that your generous donation is tax deductible.
You can also support LIVE UNCOMMON by making a donation via the “Shop for a Cause” link to the right. When you Shop for a Cause at LIVE UNCOMMON, your generous donation also goes directly to our non-profit fund. The difference is -- you receive a really sweet LIVE UNCOMMON set of threads for your generosity. You do not receive a tax deduction for this level of donation because the value of the cool LIVE UNCOMMON stuff we send to you after you donate is greater than 2% of your donation amount. The IRS folks say this type of donation does not qualify as a tax deduction for you even though your donation DOES go directly to a non-profit corporation.
So, be cool, and support the LIVE UNCOMMON movement by doing your thing in LIVE UNCOMMON apparel wherever you go and LIVE UNCOMMON. 100% of all proceeds above costs go directly to the LIVE UNCOMMON fund. LIVE UNCOMMON is a non-profit entity. You can shop for cool custom wear via the “Shop for a Cause” link right here.

Your generous donations go to the LIVE UNCOMMON fund, which further promotes the LIVE UNCOMMON mission. As a method of inspiring all of us to LIVE UNCOMMON, we recognize, encourage, and award deserving honorees, who exceptionally personify the LIVE UNCOMMON values of Family, Work Ethic, Fitness and Health, Giving Back, Balance, and Excellence, as well as sponsoring events and efforts congruent with the LIVE UNCOMMON movement.
LIVE UNCOMMON’s first order of business will be to help develop STARTER PROGRAMS for elementary and middle school level kids in the inner Quad Cities. LIVE UNCOMMON feels it can MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the young lives of future UNCOMMONERS by introducing them to the world of sports and the value of TEAMWORK, during the formative years.
Our goal is to teach the expanded fundamentals at a young age so ALL may HIT THE GROUND RUNNING, ON AN EVEN PLAYING FIELD, by the time they enter high school.
Just as the LIVE UNCOMMON movement is about much more than athletics, so will be the LIVE UNCOMMON STARTER PROGRAMS. Fitness and Health is but one component of the Cause. Living the core values of Family, Work Ethic, Giving Back, Balance, and Excellence is what defines the LIVE UNCOMMON individual. We believe that UNCOMMON individuals will make for an UNCOMMON world.
So, of paramount importance, is LIVE UNCOMMON’s COMMITMENT TO HELP equip these youths with the LIFE SKILLS necessary to become a kind, respectful, independent, contributing, well-rounded, and well-balanced PERSON OF THE WORLD.
LIVE UNCOMMON STARTER PROGRAMS will be mentor-based.
In the world today, if a child is not involved in starter programs by the time they are 7 or 8, they are at a REAL DISADVANTAGE by the time they join their high school teams. If they are trying to PLAY CATCH UP at this juncture, COLLEGE LEVEL SCHOLARSHIP is perhaps OUT OF REACH. If scholarships are not an option, a lot of these youths will not ATTEND COLLEGE. And thus perpetuates a real issue for the FUTURE OF OUR COMMUNITY.
The programs that currently exist are expensive and time-consuming for the parent of the young person. LIVE UNCOMMON believes it is unfair for any CHILD to be LEFT BEHIND because these financial or time commitments cannot be met by the parent.
LIVE UNCOMMON will step in to help level the playing field. We will CHANGE THE WORLD of at least one young person who might otherwise fall through the common cracks. And then we will CHANGE THE WORLD for another. And another….
YOU can help us, help them. YOU can MAKE A DIFFERENCE. YOU can CHANGE THE WORLD.
