Alright GQMF I'm in the down hill run toward the American Cancer Society Relay for Life!
After sifting through everyone's awesome suggestions and well wishes it is time for me beg and plead for donations. And of course tell everyone where my team is at with the drive.
As of today we've raised $120 ... and $100 of that was the team's donation. So in order to kick this drive of properly I'm stealing a page from the lovely Mod-ess starlady42's immensely big hearted book during the Help For Haiti Party Post. I'm hosting a Fund Raising Party Post on my own Journal starting RIGHT NOW. I'll let it run until midnight my time (Eastern) on Friday.
JOIN THE PARTY HERE!
- For every post before then I'll donate 1 penny to the American Cancer Society
- For every one from ontd_startrek that donates I'll throw in an extra dime
- If we break 10,000 posts by Friday midnight I'll add another $25
Every one that donates starting today can get our team button; You just have to let me know where to send it to! Fire off you're address to email@example.com and I'll make sure you get your button. Some random donators might just get other surprises like Tribbles or action figures too!
Our theme for the team is "Star Trek" so our button reflects that. The button will be 3-inch round with the logo in black on a light purple background (a little lighter than in it in that image at the top). On the back wrap around edge it reads "American Cancer Society Relay for Life 2010" and "Boldly walking where no Relayer has gone before." It's our little way to say thanks for caring enough to support our cause. The only way to get one is to donate.
As always any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
On a totally personal note:
I've been doing fund raisers and volunteer work for all kinds of causes and charities for a long time now and I have never, never been in as much down right in awe as I have been over all you guys. And I've never felt so to attached to what is essentially a group of people that I will never have the opportunity to meet that majority of, people that I know mostly by 100x100 pixel "masks". We live in a very interesting time.
A lot of people have said it before but I think it warrants repeating:
