Well… I’ve been running all around town today leaving little notecards with the blog address and fundraising info in strategic places. I know that’s not likely to pick up much traffic but I figure the more awareness I can build the better.
This evening I have tried a different tact. I am trying to send this fundraiser viral. Through my facebook account and my twitter account I have asked each reader to donate two dollars and then pass the request along to their contacts. I believe very strongly that it is better to have 100 people donating two dollars than two people donating 100. The more people this fundraiser touches, the more people may examine their own choices.
Perhaps my blogging readers would be willing to help out. Will you post about my journey and about this fundraiser? Will you ask your readers, and their readers, to donate just $2? Link your readers to this blog http://atlanticwriter.blogspot.com or directly to the secure fundraising webpage at https://www.gifttool.com/athon/MyFundraisingPage?ID=1448&AID=1027&PID=120604&Preview=Y.
