The Tempus Fugit Initiative 2015 - and Update and Reminder

As a reminder, this year the goal is to raise $25,000 for the Syrian refugee crisis.

I thought that this short video greatly outlined the reality of the situation.

So brand owners and managers - ANY AMOUNT WILL HELP.

So here we go again!

Stakes is High - The Tempus Fugit Initiative for 2015

Shamelessly borrowed by De La Soul.

As things continue to spiral out of control in Syria and as the flood of displaced peoples continues its surge to Europe's shores it is hard to get too enthusiastic about luxury items at the moment.  Don't worry, we will still be writing, talking about and covering watches ; )

But having said that, we (that is ALL of US) have a crisis on our hands and we need to try and all step up and do something.

To that end, this year's Tempus Fugit Initiative is to raise funds to help those in need as they struggle to find safe haven and shelter to begin new lives.

We at Tempus Fugit have started the ball rolling by donating $500 US of our MASSIVE budget (yes, that is sarcasm) to this effort. But at Tempus Fugit it has to be about more than just watches - it has to be about people.

Therefore, Tempus Fugit is asking every brand that is able to make some sort of donation to a charity that is working to aid those in need on the ground.  In this case, size does not matter!  

Our money is on the table, what about you? 

Can you spare $10, $25, $100 from your budget to make a statement and lend a hand?  

Individuals are encouraged to participate as well!  And we will have some nice prizes that will be awarded at random - so spare a few dollars and you may walk away with something truly cool!

If you wish to participate, here is a link to the Tempus Fugit fundraising page:

I thank you in advance for your consideration.
